A report in Monday’s (7/30) Augusta Chronicle (Georgia) states, “The Symphony Orchestra Augusta Board will have a new executive director starting Aug. 15. Mieko Di Sano succeeds Sandra Self, who has served as executive director of the symphony since 1999. The six-month national search ended with the unanimous recommendation of the search committee, according to Brian J. Marks, president of Symphony Orchestra Augusta. … Di Sano recently completed a year as a fellow with the DeVos Institute of Arts Management at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington. The program is designed to prepare mid-career professionals for executive leadership positions in the arts. Di Sano earned a bachelor of music degree in French horn performance from the University of Michigan. She was awarded both a master of music and a doctor of musical arts degree from the University of Southern California. She previously managed the youth orchestra and served as mentor-artist, director of education and outreach, and artistic administrator for the Young Musicians Foundation in Los Angeles.”
