Norwalk Symphony Orchestra hires new Executive Director

The Norwalk Symphony Orchestra (NSO) welcomes Sandra Miklave as their new Executive Director. She began her tenure on April 1st, and is replacing outgoing Executive Director Louis Pietig. As a part of the transition, she was introduced at the Norwalk Symphony’s FIGARO concert on May 19th.

The Symphony will expand its reach with six concerts in the upcoming season, as well as provide the music for the New England Dance Theatre’s annual Nutcracker performance. The Symphony’s educational outreach program, (Not) Just for Kids, presented a week prior to each performance, introduces children to the families of instruments in the orchestra while also offering an opportunity to play these instruments.

As Miklave comes on board, the Norwalk Symphony is poised to expand its fundraising efforts, repositioning its strategic plan and mission, and working to extend collaboration with other organizations in the community it serves. “I am so excited to be working with the talented musicians and individuals involved with the Norwalk Symphony. We play in a concert hall with world-class acoustics, and musicians that rival any large-city orchestra. The Symphony is a cultural gem that needs to be discovered by more people in our community who do not know what they are missing.”

Miklave is currently the Board Chair at Stepping Stones Museum for Children in Norwalk, and has been a volunteer with the museum for 20 years. She has also volunteered with numerous local organizations, including the Norwalk High School Boys Soccer Team, Stamford Young Artists Philharmonic, the Fairfield Prep Crew Team Booster Club and various school-based organizations.

The Norwalk Symphony is also happy to announce its 79th Season beginning on September 29, 2018. For more information and subscription reservations please see elsewhere on this website or call 203.956.6771.
