Sara has been working as an opera + performing arts event producer and organizer for almost two decades. From 2004 to 2011, she ran a highly successful performing arts festival for the prestigious College-Conservatory of Music at University of Cincinnati in Lucca, and later in Spoleto (Italy).
While general manager of these festivals, she was responsible for moving hundreds of people across the ocean each summer, mounting hundreds of performances, producing operas, and keeping symphony orchestras, opera casts, theatre technicians, conductors, singers, concert soloists, teachers, and interns, happy, healthy and safe.
She was also responsible for governmental and local relations, PR, and marketing, along with the plethora of other things that go with keeping that many people happy while in a foreign place. She speaks fluent Italian, and in addition to bringing performing artists and their art over to Italy, she’s also well-versed in bringing her small children along for the ride.
