Flagstaff Symphony promotes Stephanie Stallings to executive director

Posted on: February 1, 2022

“On January 28, 2022 the Flagstaff Symphony Orchestra announced [that Executive Director Larry H.] Lang would be leaving to become executive director of the Amarillo Symphony,” states an unsigned article in Sunday’s (1/30) Arizona Daily Sun. “Lang will be replaced by Stephanie Stallings, who currently serves as the development manager for FSO. ’Since moving to Flagstaff six years ago, I’ve marveled at the artistry and commitment of the FSO’s musicians,’ Stallings said. ‘Every concert leaves me inspired and hopeful. My past work as a board member and volunteer for FSO has been very rewarding, and now I’m thrilled to serve the organization in this new role.’ Stallings’ experience in the arts stretches back the entirety of her career. Assistant professor of Arts and Cultural Management at Northern Arizona University for many years, Stallings has also worked as the managing director of Los Angeles arts nonprofit, Emerging Arts Leaders, as well as for the Los Angeles County Arts Commission. She has a bachelor’s degree in piano performance, a doctorate in musicology and has lectured and taught at universities across the country. Charles Latshaw, conductor at FSO, said he was more than confident in Stallings’ leadership.”
