Grammy nominated Sara Jobin was named as Chief Conductor and later as Artistic Director. In 2004 she made history as the first woman to conduct mainstage subscription performances for San Francisco Opera. Further engagements have included Arizona Opera, Baltimore Lyric, Opera Santa Barbara, Dayton Philharmonic, Pittsburgh Opera, Symphony Silicon Valley, and three years as Resident Conductor of the Toledo Symphony and Associate Conductor of the Toledo Opera. Sara particularly seeks out projects that increase cross cultural or interfaith understanding. Named a Leonard Bernstein Music Scholar by Harvard College, Jobin tends to defy traditional categories.
