The Saratoga Performing Arts Center has announced that former Albany Symphony Orchestra General Manager Sharon Walsh will become the next executive assistant with the organization. Walsh has more than 20 years of administrative experience in various artistic venues, including 15 years with the Albany Symphony Orchestra and five years with the National Museum of Dance. She will be providing support for SPAC's President and Executive Director Marcia J. White.
While with the Albany Symphony Orchestra, Walsh managed the operational aspects of the organization including: budget development and management, music, personnel and educational programing. She retired in February from the ASO and was replaced in late summer by Brian Ritter, who has assumed general managing and developmental responsibilities as ASO's first executive director.
Walsh will join SPAC on Nov. 30, replacing staffer Nancy Meyer who is retiring at the end of the year.
