Dear AdYO members,
What an exciting year ahead for AdYO with many new faces joining those of you who continue to be involved – so a big welcome to everyone.
In breaking news I wanted to let you know that I’ve stepped down as the Chair of AdYO because I’m off to Toronto, Canada to take up a new job for the next two years. Paul Lagozzino, who has been our Deputy Chair, has fortunately agreed to step up to the Chair which means we’ll have a seamless transition at this critical stage in our development. Paul will be familiar to many of you as he’s been actively involved with AdYO for the past four years.
We’re delighted to welcome two new board members, Allishia Manariotis and Linus Ng, who will be contributing their expertise to fundraising through sponsorships and philanthropy together with their passion for music education. Below is a short bio on Linus and Allishia.
We farewell and say thank you to Michael Denholm who has been our Treasurer for many years and Angus Netting who has chaired our Parents & Friends Committee.
For those of you who are keen to be involved please contact our staff as there are many exciting volunteer roles for 2017, working on some great events and projects. We value your ongoing support and hope you have many enjoyable musical experiences with AdYO during the year ahead.
Allishia is an experienced executive who specialises in leadership, strategy and stakeholder management. Her background includes corporate roles in finance, business development and people management.
With NFP marketing and fundraising committee experience, Allishia brings networks spanning business and philanthropic sectors. Allishia is also a qualified accountant and a Member of the Australian Institute of Company Directors. Joining the ADYO Board aligns with Allishia’s passions of working with youth and the arts. She actively encourages her own children’s interest in music, with her 8 year old daughter currently learning the piano and violin and her 6 year old son who has a compelling interest in percussion!
Linus was originally from Malaysia and moved to South Australia 30 years ago. He studied engineering and has a Masters degree in Project Management. He has worked in a variety of leadership roles including serving with the Royal Australian Air Force. He currently works for BAE Systems Australia, the largest defence company in Australia. Additionally, he has experience in internal auditing and compliance. Linus enjoys playing the piano, travelling, learning languages, cooking and spending time with his family. Passionate about music, education and community, he is thrilled to be able to serve AdYO.
Adelaide Youth Orchestra will scale new heights in June, teaming up with some of South Australia's best young opera singers to present the first staged opera concert in the orchestra's history. The second in AdYO's popular Maestro series of concerts, Maestro Series 2: Passion on Saturday, June 27 and Sunday, June 28, will see the young orchestra accompany 12 talented singers from the State Opera of SA's James and Diana Ramsay Foundation Program in a selection of classic operatic works, semi-staged with costumes and stage direction, to give audiences a small taste of the full opera experience.
