Two new managers head music conservatory

  • Print

TWO new managers began their jobs Monday at the Manitoba Conservatory of Music and Arts.

Winnipegger Norine Harty has been hired as the organization's managing director and former Torontonian Meran Currie-Roberts is the new dean of music.

Both positions were created as part of an administrative re-organization.

"We feel very optimistic about the future of the MCMA, with the changes already implemented and the addition of two highly qualified staff members who will help lead us into the new school year," board president Ray Hope said in a statement.

As a cost-saving measure, the conservatory recently downsized its classroom and office space onto one floor, the second, of the former Crocus Building at 211 Bannatyne Ave.

The conservatory had previously been managed by one person, an executive director.

Harty recently has been general manager at the Knowledge Bureau and business manager at Age & Opportunity in Winnipeg. Currie-Roberts, whose conservatory position is part time, is a professional cellist, teacher and arts administrator. She moved here last fall with her husband, Rafael Hoekman, the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra's new assistant principal cello.
