Jack W. Geltz Distinguished Piano Chair

David Allen Wehr

David Allen Wehr“Someone has to pass on their knowledge. One of the biggest contributions I can make here is to draw upon my years of experience, my years of traveling and performing, and bring it to bear in very specific ways to the students I work with, one-on-one.”

The full-time, tenure-track faculty position was created by a gift from Jack W. Geltz, B’49, GA’84. The Geltz endowment makes it possible to retain an exceptional performer and teacher like pianist David Allen Wehr, who was appointed to the chair when it was created in 2006. Wehr, who previously was Duquesne’s first Hillman Distinguished Professor, brings 30 years of performing experience to the classroom.
