Dr. Khari Joyner will take on the role, succeeding Regina Mushabac, who was a professor of cello at the Ohio-based university for 46 years


A graduate of the Juilliard School, Khari previously had teaching affiliations with Columbia University, Sarah Lawrence College, Columbia University, and the Mannes Preparatory Division.

"Extremely elated to officially announce my joining the faculty as a tenure-track Assistant Professor of Cello this fall at Baldwin Wallace University!" said Joyner in a Facebook post. "I am incredibly humbled and privileged to be continuing the legacy of the immeasurable Regina Mushabac, who has been at the helm of the cello studio at BW in her 46-year tenure.

"It is a real honor to be following her footsteps, and I can’t wait to work with my wonderfully talented, gifted, and promising students in this new journey. I have so many people to thank along the way, family, friends, colleagues, teachers, mentors... and I can’t wait to see what’s in store!! On to a new chapter!"
