ICM Artists Exec Tapped to Head Shriver Hall Concert Series

David J. Baldwin

The board of directors of Shriver Hall Concert Series has named David J. Baldwin the new executive director of the chamber music and solo recital series. Baldwin, who will be responsible for the artistic direction and administrative management, promotion and continued growth of the series, assumed the post Jan. 2.

Baldwin was most recently director of ICM Artists, London Ltd., a subsidiary of International Creative Management, which represents an extensive roster of classical instrumentalists, vocalists and conductors and manages the touring activities of numerous orchestras, chamber ensembles, choirs, dance and opera companies, and other performing groups. Prior to his six years in that position, he was an associate manager in the Conductors Division of ICM in New York. Among the artists Baldwin has managed during his career are famed pianists Leon Fleisher, Yefim Bronfman and Garrick Ohlsson; celebrated conductors Christoph Eschenbach, Robert Spano and David Robertson; internationally renowned cellist Lynn Harrell; and the multi-Grammy Award-winning Wynton Marsalis and the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra.

A graduate of the University of Pennsylvania, Brown earned a diploma in piano accompaniment from Philadelphia's Curtis Institute of Music and an MBA from Columbia.

Baldwin takes the helm of the now-independent Shriver Hall Concert Series — established in 1965 by Ernst Bueding and a dedicated group of Johns Hopkins faculty — as it prepares to celebrate its 40th anniversary. Celebration events include Community Day, a program of music activities for students, to be held in March; Piano Celebration, scheduled for April 7, 8 and 9 with pianists Krystian Zimerman, Fleisher, Fazil Say, McCoy Tyner, Kit Armstrong and Malcolm Bilson, and lecturers David Dubal, Michael Beckerman and Michael Kimmelman; and Face the Music, an April 29 gala dinner and auction to raise funds to support the series' new educational outreach endowment.
