PASADENA, CA (CelebrityAccess) — The Board of Directors of Boston Court Pasadena announced that that organization has a new leadership team and a new direction for its programming.
According to BCP, Jessica Kubzansky, a Founding Artistic Director of the organization, has been promoted to the role of its Artistic Director beginning January 1, 2020.
General Manager Cheryl Rizzo has been promoted to serve as the organization’s Managing Director and will be starting her new role effective immediately.
The new team will continue to work with the organization’s current artistic director Michael Michetti through the remainder of the 2019 season, with Michetti then stepping back as Artistic Director Emeritus.
In addition to the new leadership team, BCP announced plans to change to a traditional fall-to-fall performance season starting with the 2020/2021 season, which will be announced in the Spring of 2020.
This shift in the programming calendar will bring the organization into alignment with the majority of arts organizations in Los Angeles and across the country, will enable Boston Court to more easily explore partnerships with other organizations, and also better serve audience members by offering programming on a more standardized schedule,” Rizzo said.
BCP’s 2019 season will conclude with the world premiere of How the Light Gets In by E.M. Lewis, directed by Emilie Pascale Beck (September 19 – October 28), and the 15-concert Fall Music Series (September 20 – October 26) featuring a list of artists that includes classical pianist Susan Svrçek, Los Angeles Percussion Quartet, LA Master Chorale Music Director Grant Gershon, and jazz pianist Josh Nelson.
