Phone: 801-541-2735

Cassie Taylor has enjoyed a long and loving relationship with the University of Utah School of Music. As a student (BMA 2007, DMA 2013), Cassie competed and performed in many of the U’s competitions, festivals and featured concerts. As a doctoral candidate, she restructured and expanded the University of Utah Piano Outreach Program (UPOP), created the Ladies in Red piano ensemble, served as the Program Coordinator for the Red Hots! performing group, and worked as a development assistant for the U of U Piano Centennial Campaign. Following graduation, Cassie held a dual appointment at the School as a Development Assistant and Adjunct Assistant Professor, while also serving as Music Department Chair at the Salt Lake School for the Performing Arts. In addition to being a School of Music student, alumna and faculty member, Cassie has served on both the U of U Young Alumni Board and School of Music Advisory Board. In recent years, Cassie has stepped away from performing and teaching to pursue a career in development and fundraising. Now, she is excited to be working with the College of Fine Arts and thrilled to be returning to the School of Music as Director of Development.
