Spokane Symphony/Fox Executive Director Nienhouse Moving On After a Decade

— Brenda Nienhouse will be leaving her ten-year position leading the region's largest and most active professional performing arts organization. She will take a job as Executive Director for the Newport Performing Arts Center in Rhode Island next month.

Nienhouse became Executive Director of the Spokane Symphony and its historic theater, Martin Woldson Theater at The Fox in 2005. The Symphony has undergone a cultural renaissance under Nienhouse's leadership, including cutting edge collaborations with local indie bands and alternative venues, innovative partnerships with the Spokane Public Schools, Spokane Civic Theater, and the Spokane International Film Festival, as well as cultural exchanges with the Spokane Tribe, all while the orchestra's reputation has continued to rise.

Nienhouse was responsible for completing the $30+ million capital campaign and overseeing the renovation of what has become Spokane's national award-winning Art Deco jewel and the Symphony's new home in 2007. She redefined what an orchestra means to a community when she became the first in Spokane to pair New Markets and Historic Tax Credits to help fund the restoration. Her creative financing solution was considered trailblazing at the time, and still serves as a national model.
Best of luck to Brenda!
