Carlin cues Mancini gig

New NARAS exec director will be responsible for org's growth, development

Music editor Dan Carlin, chair of the National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences, has been named executive director of the Henry Mancini Institute. 

Carlin will be responsible for the org’s growth and development.

He has had a leadership role in restructuring the Grammy org and pushing forward its corporate governance, advocacy and education agendas.

He also worked on the design, funding and development of the composer program at the Sundance Institute, and has served for more than 20 years on the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences’ music executive committee.

Entering its ninth season, the institute boasts a summer education program benefiting 84 young adult musicians and a community outreach initiative that includes school partnerships, after-school programs and community combos featuring HMI alumni.

Carlin’s first major collaboration came in 1977 on the series “Lou Grant,” working with the Mancini Institute’s current artistic director, Patrick Williams.

Carlin’s company Segue Music provided music supervision, editing, soundtrack production and consulting services on hundreds of film and television projects, including the NBC miniseries “The Temptations.”

Carlin also served as principal conductor and music supervisor on “The Black Stallion” and “The Last of the Mohicans.” Segue was eventually sold to Zomba in 1995.

“Dan has been a committed friend to the Mancini Institute since its earliest days,” said Ginny Mancini, president of the org’s board of directors. “His passion for music and education, combined with his experience in business and wide-ranging contacts will go a long way toward reaching our goal of being the premier international organization providing opportunity to future generations of musicians.”
