It’s nice to meet you. I’ll be joining Danny during his online updates of the goings-on at AVA and providing my musical insights along the way.
If you’ve visited AVA recently, you might have seen me at the front desk. I’m Samantha and I work in marketing and managing AVA’s new young professionals’ group.
When I’m not at AVA or helping to run our performances, you’ll find me training for my next run on the beautiful Schuylkill River Trail, reading in Rittenhouse Square (on an autumnal day) or rehearsing for an upcoming gig with my rock band.
This year, AVA is already off to a busy and exciting start. We’re in the midst of staging for L’italiana in Algeri – the first time AVA has ever performed Rossini’s opera – and we’ve just completed the Giargiari Bel Canto Competition to a sold-out audience. Suffice it to say it’s been a whirlwind of a few weeks!
I look forward to chronicling the goings-on here at AVA and am excited to have you along for the ride!
Stay well and until next time - SvA
