Cashman Prince, PhD

Dr. Cashman Kerr Prince ('88) served as the sole employee of the nationwide non-profit Music for Food from 2015 to 2018, bringing together musicians to combat food insecurity on a local level.
During those three years, Music for Food grew by 50% and pantry donations increased by 130%.

After graduating from LSMSA, Cashman studied English literature and Classics at Wesleyan University. In 1992 he moved to San Francisco where he worked in a law firm for three years (two as a paralegal) before starting a Ph.D. program in Classics with a minor in Comparative Literature at Stanford. While doing that he picked up an M.Phil-equivalent from Université de Paris-8 during an exchange at l’Ecole Normale Supérieure. There followed a decade of teaching higher education in the U.S. & Canada.

The last dozen years has found him settling in the Boston area where he leads discussion groups on Beacon Hill, served as an elected trustee of his town’s public library, reviews classical music concerts for The Boston Musical Intelligencer, plays in the Brookline Symphony Orchestra (an outstanding community orchestra), and serves on several non-profit boards.

Cashman says, “The school fundamentally changed me. I wouldn’t be here professionally and personally without it.”  He has been greatly involved in non-profits and education and looks forward to giving back his time to LSMSA.
