Boston-based Berklee College of Music has just added Stephen Croes to its roster as dean of the music technology divison. In this role, Croes will oversee the music production and engineering department and the music synthesis department.

Croes' comprehensive career includes an eclectic array of work in various music roles, from mixing, engineering, producing, orchestrating, conducting, arranging, writing, programming, sound design and performance on keyboards and percussion. He has contributed to recordings by Fleetwood Mac, Geggy Tah, Kenny Loggins, Stevie Wonder, Brenda Russell, Jennifer Warnes, The Yellowjackets and Leonard Cohen. Croes has worked on feature films such as Bull Durham, Red Scorpion and The Treat; his television credits include work on Star Trek: The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, Voyager and Enterprise, National Geographic specials and Cousteau Society specials, as well as work for TV specials for PBS, ABC, NBC, CBS, Showtime and Fox.

"The thing that appealed to me about Berklee," said Croes, "is the variety of what goes on here and the significance of what goes on here. Education is a renewable resource here. This is a place where ideas and techniques and experiences are always evolving and developing out in the open. Everybody that participates gets to deal with new things all of the time, and this energy is very exciting."

Harry Chalmiers, provost/VP for academic affairs, said, "We are so very fortunate to have Steve as our new dean. He brings an enormous variety of professional experiences and expertise to the college, and his knowledge of the industry will be invaluable to our students seeking to begin their careers. Steve has gained the admiration and respect of the students, faculty and administration in record time!"
