Michelle Oswell

Director of Music Library Information Resources

Michelle, a member of the Curtis community since 2012, is the library administrator, orders print materials for the library collection and manages all electronic resources and the website.  Previously a music librarian at Rutgers University and Haverford College, Michelle holds the Ph.D. in musicology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, a Master’s in Library Science from Drexel University, and a Bachelor’s degree in music theory from the University of Delaware.

Michelle no longer plays a modern orchestral instrument, but will play pretty much any early wind instrument you put in front of her.  When not tormenting her dog with high-pitched instruments, she enjoys reading classic literature and taking her dog, Callie, on hiking trips in the area.
