Principal Gifts Officer


Position Summary:

It starts with the creation myth: St. Vincent, naked and alone in the wilderness, startled as the ominous rattle of a snake breaks the silence of her Eden. She realizes she's not alone in the world and breaks into a run, headed towards the uncertainty of the future. It's a lovely and appropriate metaphor to open St. Vincent's self-titled fourth album, except that it literally happened.

Guitarist and composer JOSÉ LUIS RODRÍGUEZ is considered the continuation of the school of Mario Escudero. His music is characterized by his capacity for interpretation and composition, which supports itself with impeccable technique. He has accompanied some of the most important figures of flamenco song and dance, and for nine years he was musical director and composer for Cristina Hoyos’ flamenco dance company.

NICK MANGANO (director) is happy to continue a longtime association with Steve Reich and Beryl Korot, having staged The Cave (Lincoln Center, international tour), and the world premiere (Vienna Festival) and international tour of Three Tales.

Originally from England, David Melville came to the United States in the Broadway production of Hamlet in 1995. He co-founded Independent Shakespeare Co. (ISC) with his wife Melissa Chalsma in 1998. ISC’s Griffith Park Free Shakespeare Festival currently performs for 45,000 attendees every summer.
