Stanley Romanstein

Stanley E. Romanstein, Ph.D. is an accomplished nonprofit executive with 22 years of leadership and management experience in education and the arts, most recently at the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra. Previously as President and CEO of the Minnesota Humanities Center, he focused the Center’s mission around clear, measurable objectives, consistent with the agency’s history and mandate. He developed a strategic plan to fulfill that mission, and articulated the mission to audiences throughout Minnesota. Prior to that position, Stanley was Director of Development at the Frederick R. Weisman Art Museum in Minneapolis; Executive Director of the Baltimore School for the Arts and Baltimore School for the Arts Foundation; and Associate Professor and Chair of the Department of Music at St. Lawrence University.

A singer, and native of South Carolina, Dr. Romanstein grew up in a household of music — both parents were also singers, and his mother a pianist. After earning his undergraduate degree in music, he went on to the University of Cincinnati’s Conservatory of Music to earn his master’s degree in conducting, and a Ph.D. in musicology. He has also lived in Cincinnati, Jerusalem, New York, Florence, Baltimore, Romania, and spent time as a Fulbright Scholar first for a year of study at Hebrew University in Jerusalem, and later in Japan.
