Conklin, a longtime resident of Waterville Valley, has worked with the Festival in the past, serving five successful years as its General Manager. She will handle management responsibilities until a permanent General Manager is named later this year.

The Festival’s former Executive Director, Frank Pesci, is relocating to Berlin, Germany, where his wife has accepted a position with a professional opera company.

“We want to express to Mr. Pesci the depth of our appreciation for the leadership role he has played with the Festival during these last 18 months,” said Board Chair Dick Hanaway. “He came into our organization during a critical time and played an important part in stabilizing and renewing our beloved Festival. He has left his personal imprint on the New Hampshire Music Festival and will be a permanent part of our future.”

The New Hampshire Music Festival is in its 61st season offering classical, pops and chamber music.  The music director is Donato Cabrera of the San Francisco Symphony.

For nearly 20 years, the Festival has been in residence at Plymouth State University, and is now a fixture at the Hanaway Theatre in the Silver Center for the Arts.  CLICK HERE for a complete listing of the 61st season, or call 603-279-3300.
