The Sarasota Opera is one of the better regional Opera companies in America, and it appears they are ramping up the energy. The much pedigreed American countertenor Mr. David Walker has been engaged to fill the position of Associate Director of Development. Mr. Walker holds a Bachelor of Arts in Industrial Engineering from Lafayette College, a Master of Music in Vocal Performance with a certificate in Opera Performance from Florida State University, a Master of Arts in Arts Administration and a Master of Business Administration with an Arts Administration focus from the College-Conservatory of Music and University of Cincinnati respectively. COMMANDOpera is always impressed when Opera companies engage vocal talent for such positions who actually own the background for such work, as opposed to simply having appeared on stages. The Sarasota Opera owns one of the most efficient and well oiled development department where Mr. Walker will assuredly be up to calibre, overseeing the Special Events and Grants Departments, the Single and Double Co-Producer major individual giving programs, and the Verdi Circle individual giving program.
