SANTA FE – The Santa Fe Pro Musica (SFPM) Board of Directors announced that prominent musician and Pro Musica co-founder Carol Redman has been appointed Music Director to manage the 2022-23 season and plan for the 2023- 24.
Redman will guide and support the Board of Directors, along with the Executive Director and a newly created Musician Advisory Council, in creating the post-founding structure that will best serve the mission and continued success of the organization.
During her more than 40-year tenure with Pro Musica, Redman has contributed to the organization in many roles: principal flautist, music librarian, orchestra director, educator, and stage manager. Redman is celebrated as one of this season’s Women of Distinction winners.
“I have worked for Pro Musica since day one, doing everything that needed to be done and as a result I know firsthand the intricacies of the industry, this organization and our musicians,” Redman said. “I grew up in Las Cruces and have deep roots in New Mexico and the Santa Fe community. I am honored to be named Music Director as my grand finale with Pro Musica and will be working in partnership with our Executive Director Andrea Cassutt, our staff, our Board of Directors and on behalf of our musicians, I am excited and prepared for this journey.
Pro Musica’s four-decade history provides a solid foundation and launching pad for innovation. The Musician Advisory Board includes professional musicians engaged in the Santa Fe community, with networks of national and international colleagues, and passionate about Pro Musica’s unique artistic vision. The group meets every two months to develop a recommendation to the board of directors and a collaborative artistic direction plan adapted to the mission, structure and values of Pro Musica.
“Carol brings a varied and unique skill set that has long been an asset to Pro Musica and we are grateful for her experience and dedication. Having always supported our artistic vision and excellence from behind the scenes, it is exciting to see her step into the role of musical director and I’m honored to work with her,” Cassutt said.
