ATLANTA, (July 1, 2014) - The Atlanta Opera is pleased to announce the appointment of Sarah Zabinski as the Director of Development.

“I am thrilled to return to a full time development role in the operatic world,” says Ms. Zabinski. “The Atlanta Opera is poised to establish itself as a company focused of innovation and prestige and I look forward to playing a significant role in its future. I could not be more excited to be a part of the preeminent opera company of the South.”

Sarah began her career in non-profit development at the Cincinnati Opera where she worked closely with both development and the Board of Directors. After work with the development department at Southern Methodist University, she made Atlanta her home as Individual Giving Manager and then Associate Director of Development for the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra. While in this position Sarah was responsible for all individual giving, including the Annual Fund and major and planned giving.

Sarah, a Dallas native, holds a bachelor’s degree in music from the University of Michigan and a master’s degree in voice from the Cincinnati College Conservatory of Music. She spent the years immediately following her schooling singing professionally with a variety of opera companies and orchestras and is a two-time district winner of the Metropolitan Opera Council Auditions in South Carolina.

Founded in 1979, The Atlanta Opera is one of the finest regional opera companies in the nation.
