Just in: LA Opera loses top guy to TexasNews
We have just been told that Joshua Winograde, Senior Director of Artistic Programs at LA Opera, is joining Rice’s Shepherd School of Music in Houston as Professor of Opera and Director of Opera Studies.
Winograde was in charge of mainstage casting and artistic administration at LA Opera, as well as the Domingo-Colburn-Stein Young Artist Program. LA Opera feel so badly about his move that they have already erased him from their website.
Shepherd School Dean Matthew Loden said he ‘couldn’t be more thrilled’ to recruit Winograde. ‘He is a driving force and visionary leader in the opera world, and a champion of developing the vocal stars of tomorrow,’ said Loden.
