About the Artist
Elaine C. Carroll has worked in not-for-profit management for 20 years. She has secured grants from many major foundations and the Connecticut Office of the Arts, the New York State Council on the Arts, the National Endowment for the Arts, and the U.S. Department of Education. In Spring 2010, she produced the all-Stamford fundraising concert for Haitian Earthquake Relief that raised $24,637 in a few short weeks; the Symphony’s musicians donated their performance so that all of the money raised could be sent to Haiti. Under her leadership as Executive Director, the NHSO has enjoyed a new-found economic stability. The Symphony has been “in the black” for several consecutive seasons and replenished its Strategic Cash Reserve. The Symphony is making more music in more places and engaging more listeners. The NHSO will presents more than 50 public performances each season for more than 40,000 people. Elaine and the NHSO staff work with partners in Shelton, Hamden, Norwalk, Hartford, Essex, Clinton, Cheshire, Fairfield, Milford, New London, Woodstock, Norfolk, and the Naugatuck Valley to create a truly regional presence for the Symphony.
