Women's Leadership Event with Renia Shterenberg - December 2023
Join us as we WELCOME and "lean in and learn" from Renia Shterenberg, Executive Director of the Bangor Symphony Orchestra.
Ms. Shterenberg brings a wealth of experience in arts administration to the BSO and, as a former violinist, has a deep-rooted passion for classical music. In her role with the BSO, she will provide leadership and vision while assuming the role of the organization?s strategic and operational leader, overseeing the artistic, financial, and administrative aspects of the organization, continuing the BSO?s long-term goals of artistic excellence, community engagement and educational outreach to ensure its continued success. In her current role as the General Manager of the Britt Festival Orchestra in Jacksonville, Oregon, she has been instrumental in the fiscal oversight of the orchestra?s budget, and played a critical role in raising contributions which resulted in growth to the orchestra?s dedicated Classical Annual Fund of over 33% in the first year of her tenure. Shterenberg also spearheaded grant-writing initiatives for both the orchestra and educational departments and has collaborated on programming and audience development plans that resulted in increased attendance, revenue, and recognition for the Britt Festival Orchestra.
In addition to her work at Britt, Shterenberg served as the Executive Director of the Olmos Ensemble in San Antonio, Texas, since 2015. The ensemble is one of the leading chamber music groups in south Texas and has gained national recognition for its world-class performances, recordings, and live broadcasts. Under her stewardship, the organization has expanded its concert offerings and consistently operated with balanced or surplus budgets.
Shterenberg is eager to work in close collaboration with the BSO?s Grammy award-winning Music Director, Lucas Richman, and the Board of Directors to continue enriching the Bangor community through high-quality musical performances and educational outreach.
Join us and hear what motivates and energizes Renia! Our host, Deb Neuman, will help us all lean in and learn!
