We need a collaborative leader who can help Classical Tahoe grow and mature at the same time. This is a chance to not only manage an excellent music festival with incredible world class performances, but also to nurture and help shape its future—guiding and inspiring the staff, board, and musicians to achievement. If this resonates with you, we look forward to hearing from you! Thank you for applying." — Marna Broida, Chair, Board of Directors
