California Presenters held a phone seminar for CP members with Marcy Hinand, Principal for Helicon and author of their most recent groundbreaking report Making Meaningful Connections, on Wednesday, December 3, 2014. She gave a guided tour of the report’s findings: that organizations who successfully engage diverse participants have made an explicit, sustained and organization-wide commitment to change, regardless of whether special funding is available. This commitment manifests itself in ways that both cut across the entire organization, and are expressed in specific components of their work.

The La Jolla Music Society has announced the appointment of Kristin Lancino as their new President & Artistic Director effective October 15, 2015. Ms. Lancino brings a profound knowledge and insight from her three-decade career in the arts.
She has held senior positions at Carnegie Hall, including a decade as Director of Artistic Planning when she developed series for Daniel Barenboim, Pierre Boulez and András Schiff, at IMG Artists as Executive Director and at G. Schirmer, Inc as Vice-President. A sought-after consultant, Ms. Lancino worked with the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center as an advisor to David Finckel and Wu Han and on projects with the 92nd Street Y, Aaron Copland Fund, James Conlon and the Emerson String Quartet among many others.
The Long Center has tapped veteran Arizona arts executive Cory Baker to lead a newly formed department which will combine the organization’s programming and production teams. Ms. Baker assumes the role of Vice President, Programming and Production, effective December 1, 2015.
The announcement marks the culmination of an extensive international search. Long Center President & CEO Jamie Grant said finding the right person was critical. “We went into this knowing that whoever gets the job will leave a major footprint on the Long Center and the Austin arts scene at-large,” Grant said. “It had to be someone with the experience, vision and passion that Cory brings to the table. Austin is a unique city, and we found a unique individual to help lead the Long Center into its next phase of growth and prosperity.”
