Posted on: December 4, 2020

“The La Jolla Music Society hardly needed to look beyond its own backyard to find Todd Schultz, who today is being named the 52-year-old arts organization’s new president and CEO,” writes George Varga in Tuesday’s (12/1) San Diego Union-Tribune. “Schultz, 54, has spent the past year as the senior vice president of development for the McCallum Theatre in Palm Desert. Before that, he was the San Diego Symphony’s vice president of institutional advancement from 2015 to 2019, the Old Globe’s director of development from 2004 to 2015, and San Diego Opera’s director of marketing and public relations from 1994 to 2000” and previously was the Atlanta Opera’s director of marketing and public relations. “Schultz will begin his new job on Jan. 4 and has signed an initial three-year contract…. ‘Todd loves opera and is deeply knowledgeable about orchestral music. His love of the arts and his deep-rooted connection to San Diego are significant advantages—and a great opportunity for La Jolla Music Society,’ artistic director Leah Rosenthal said…. She envisions working closely with Schultz to help the organization pivot as necessary through these unpredictable times and move ahead.”
