Daniel Crupi, Executive Director, The Santa Fe Symphony Orchestra & Chorus

Carolina in the Desert:  An Arts Update from Santa Fe

As the Executive Director of The Santa Fe Symphony Orchestra & Chorus, Daniel sets and executes the vision for the company, working in tandem with artistic and Board leadership to produce innovative & vibrant performances, engage new audiences, and relate to the local community in unique ways. In the last year, he has grown philanthropy by 25%, raised more than half a million dollars for the Symphony Foundation, established a new emphasis on community engagement and educational programming, and re-aligned the digital presence and artistic vision of the company. In addition to its standard programming, the Santa Fe Symphony now focuses its efforts on prioritizing diversity and inclusion, presenting non-traditional performance mediums in unusual spaces, and forging community partnerships with companies ranging from museums to breweries to environmental advocacy organizations, especially as it seeks to re-invent the model for live symphonic performance in a post-COVID world.

Before moving to Santa Fe, Daniel worked for 6 years at the Greensboro Symphony Orchestra, serving first as Director of Development and later as Chief Operating Officer. During his time at GSO, he is most proud of significant philanthropic growth, the receipt of major grants from the Getty Foundation, League of American Orchestras, and National Endowment for the Arts, national coverage of GSO in HuffPost, WQXR New York, Playbill, and Forbes, and the founding of both Vivace Young Professionals and the HOPS Series at the former Preyer Brewing in downtown Greensboro.

While in Greensboro, Daniel served on the Board the Rotary Club of Greensboro, having chaired both the 2017 Rotary Youth Leadership Program and Bob Sawyer Award Committee. He also served on the Board of the Triad Chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals, and as a Music Minister at St. Paul the Apostle Catholic Church. He is a graduate of UNCG and the University of Notre Dame, and is passionate about discovering new ways to interest people, in particular younger generations, in the classical arts.
