Adrian Ross '96

Adrian Ross, a 1996 graduate of Berklee's Music Business/Management Department, has been named Berklee's new director of alumni affairs.

Ross, a jazz trumpeter from Newfoundland, initially came to Berklee after winning a scholarship from National Musicfest Canada. He has performed with various groups in Canada, Europe, and the United States., including appearances with Tommy Campbell and John Faddis.

Prior to his Berklee appointment, Ross served as promotions director for WILD-AM radio in Boston and as Northeast urban college representative for Polygram Group Distribution in Woburn.

His plans for building alumni relations include organizing more alumni events at Berklee. "I want alumni who haven't been back in years, to see the growth of the college and get reconnected," Ross said. "I also hope to increase communications through electronic, password-protected alumni directories for various regions and countries. Communication and providing service for alumni will be a major focus for this office." [See "Class Connections" in this issue]
