On Site Opera Announces New Board President

By Francisco Salazar

 On Site Opera has announced the appointment of current board Secretary Corey Kinger as the new President, effective Sept. 1, 2022.

The current board President Jane A. Gross, who has served in her role since the company’s inception in 2012, has been designated unanimously by the board as the Founding President Emerita, a title that will be attached to her name in perpetuity.

Kinger has served on the On Site Opera board since 2016 and as Secretary since 2018. She has served as Gala Co-Chair twice and brings her corporate experience to OSO’s board discussions, including critical thinking about the alignment of financial position and artistic goals, and bringing her corporate insights about DEI to champion the importance of On Site Opera’s own values and commitments.

In a statement Kinger noted, “Since attending my first On Site Opera production in 2016, I have been impressed by how bringing opera to unique, site-specific locations and making it an immersive experience transforms opera — creating a deeper connection between the artists and the audience and making opera accessible and enjoyable to more people. In its first 10 years, On Site Opera has made an incredible impact in helping reimagine what opera can be. I am honored to continue my service to On Site Opera and I look forward to partnering further with everyone at the company as we work together to create new opera experiences that resonate with an expansive audience.”

On Site Opera next presents “Birthday Bash” followed by an appearance at the Caramoor Festival.
