Happy and relieved are the words for today. Beginning July 6, I will be working for the Santa Rosa Symphony as Marketing and Development Associate. I met with the fantastic group of dedicated administrative staff and executive director on Monday and yesterday they offered me a job. It’s been a long five months of searching for something that fits both my skills and interests. Music performance, arts education, and commitment to community are high in my values hierarchy.
As one of my references said, “Congratulations. I think the this will be a very good fit for what you want to do and, as importantly, the way in which you like to do it.”
The Symphony is celebrating the final season with maestro Jeffrey Kahane as music director with a fabulous line up of concerts. And, in Fall of 2006, is scheduled to make its home at the world-class Green Music Center under development in partnership with Sonoma State University. I’m delighted to be part of this truly exciting period in the Santa Rosa Symphony’s 75 year history.
And, by the way, yeeeeeehaaaaa and hoooooray!!!!
