A New Executive Director For Our 'New World': Welcome, Sarah O'Connell

You may recognize her as the gal proudly proclaiming "You are what you eat, so Eat More Art," to everyone she meets or in her previous capacity as our Partnership Manager, but this founder of EatMoreArtVegas.com is excited to join forces with our Music Director Alexandra Arrieche and our Board to guide us through the changing landscape as we create opportunities and advance our mission.

An adjunct professor with the UNLV College of Fine Arts, Sarah has built an international career as a Theatre Director, Producer, and Arts Advocate. She earned her Master of Drama Degree in Directing at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and has helped to develop new interdisciplinary works with several notable artists including the original opera The Difficulty of Crossing a Field by playwright Mac Wellman, composer David Lang, and the Kronos Quartet.

In her position helping to manage the administrative side of the HSO, Sarah looks forward to strengthening our relationships with the public and our greater cultural community as we create opportunities and strategies for success that serve our mission. With her help, we will find a way forward as we negotiate for space during the closure of the pavilion.
