    Kyle Siebrecht

    Kyle Siebrecht became the Associate Director of the Center for the Humanities at the University of Miami in January 2009. She received the Master of Music degree in musicology in May 2008 from the University of Miami. In 2002 she was the recipient of the Presser Music Award to support research in the French colonial archives for Prince of Haiti / King of Paris, a theatre piece based on the life and writings of Moreau de St.- Méry, political figure, jurist, and chronicler of eighteenth-century Haiti. St.-Méry documented, among many other aspects of eighteenth-century Saint-Domingue / Haiti, its music and dance including the significance of French colonial and Afro-Haitian influences. These writings formed the basis of the historical reconstructions of music and dance in Saint-Domingue featured throughout Prince of Haiti.
    Siebrecht’s area of study includes music and dance of the early Caribbean (sixteenth through eighteenth centuries), including the interaction of European, African, and Amerindian cultures.
    From 2007 through 2009 Siebrecht served as marketing and management consultant to the Miami Bach Society/Tropical Baroque Music Festival. She founded Florida Historical Performance Company in 2001, and serves as Artistic Director of that organization.
    Siebrecht was Executive Director of Seattle International Music Festival, an international classical music festival, from 1989 through 1994. The Festival, under the artistic direction of Dmitry Sitkovetsky, had a European orchestra in residence, and featured international artists such as Bella Davidovich and Vladimir Feltsman.
    From 1984-1988 Siebrecht was Managing Director of Florida Repertory Theatre in West Palm Beach. She was responsible for the administrative planning and implementation of a ten-month season of performances for this fully professional 362-seat Equity theatre.
    Kyle Siebrecht is a native of South Florida. She attended Duke University and received a Bachelor of Science degree in zoology from the University of Florida.
