The St. Louis Symphony has announced that they've added a new member to their organizational ensemble. Anna Kuwabara has been named as the Symphony's new vice president of orchestra operations and facilities.
Kuwabara comes to the Symphony from a position as the assistant director of MBA career & professional development at the Harvard Business School, a post she's held since 2008.
In the musical arena, Kuwabara worked as the Chicago Symphony Orchestra's Director of Operations for seven years and is a graduate of the the League of American Orchestra’s Orchestra Management Fellowship Program.
“Anna brings great knowledge and skills, and a breadth and depth of experience that is truly formidable, traits that will make her an outstanding addition to the St. Louis Symphony management team and terrific asset for our institution. I could not be more delighted,” Fred Bronstein, president and CEO of the St. Louis Symphony said.
Kuwabara will assume the new role effective Jan. 17, 2012.
