079 - John Rozzoni

June 21st, 2019


Cindy Hennon Marino met John Rozzoni at Tri-Cities Opera in 2013 when they did #Carmen. At the time, John was transitioning out of a singing career and working part-time as program editor and social media manager. He did such an amazing job that the next season he became full-time as Director of Community Engagement. After Cindy left TCO, John became the Director of House Operations at Anderson Center for the Performing Arts. But starting on July 1, he comes full circle and will become the new Executive Director at TCO! Amazing where some vision and a music degree from IthacaCollege can take you!
