KUTZTOWN, Pa. - Following a national search, KU Presents! is pleased to announce the appointment of Robin Zaremski as its new director.
In her responsibilities as director, Zaremski will strive to further establish KU Presents! as the center of cultural life at Kutztown University and the regional community, by bringing innovative live music, theater and dance to campus and, soon, to the newly renovated Schaeffer Auditorium.
Prior to joining KU Presents!, Zaremski served as the executive director of Levitt Pavilion SteelStacks and as business manager for the performing arts center at Bethlehem's ArtsQuest. In these positions, Zaremski managed the programming and business operations for ArtsQuest and was responsible for presenting over 500 performing artists for the Levitt Pavilion SteelStacks summer series, Musikfest 2012, SteelJam and Sabor festivals.
Additionally, Zaremski was a faculty member at Albright College from 2007 - 2011, where she taught a variety of music business courses and initiated the creation of LION Records, a student-managed record label. As the associate manager of business and legal affairs at New York City's Universal Music Group, from 2004 - 2006, Zaremski used her expertise to negotiate, draft and execute contracts. She has held a number of other entertainment related positions, including director of performing arts at ArtsQuest and director of business affairs for Almo Sounds/Rondor Music International.
"It's an exciting time for KU Presents!," said John Green, associate vice president of communications, marketing and external affairs. "The entire KU family has a lot to look forward to - a new director, a new auditorium with the reopening of Schaeffer Auditorium in a few months, and a fantastic opening season!"
Zaremski earned a bachelor's degree in political science and public administration at West Chester University in 1984, a juris doctor from Temple University's Beasley School of Law in 1987 and a certificate in Recording Arts and Sciences from the UCLA Extension Program in 1993.
She is excited to start her new position and begin creating a new series for KU Presents!
"I love live performance!" Zaremski said. "For me, it's about bringing people together, giving the audience a great experience, making memories and enriching the lives of everyone at the show. We will have a state-of-the-art facility at KU and I am excited to work toward making the new Schaeffer Auditorium a centerpiece of arts and culture for the campus, Berks County and surrounding communities."
