We usually don’t post about the appointment of artists for positions outside of the Ocean State, but had to send our congratulations to Rhode Island artist Francisco Noya on being named Music Director of the Boston Civic Symphony. Francisco is well-known (and beloved) in our state as the Resident Conductor of the Rhode Island Philharmonic Orchestra.
On the off-chance that you weren’t listening to Rhode Island Public Radio on Thursday morning, May 25th at 6:51am, you missed RISCA’s Adrienne Adeyemi join Dan Schleifer from New Urban Arts talk about New Urban Arts at 20 and the threats public funding for the arts are currently facing. Thanks to modern technology you can listen at your leisure by going to http://ripr.org/post/ri-artscape-new-urban-arts-20 . Enjoy.
