Philharmonic names new director of development

From page B5 | September 05, 2012 |

Sacramento Philharmonic President and CEO David Nystrom announced that Jasmin Hakes has been promoted to the position of director of development.

Hakes previously served for two years as the Philharmonic’s development coordinator, managing the Philharmonic’s patron relations and coordinating a successful spring fundraising campaign to close an anticipated budget deficit of the 2011-2012 concert season.

“With nearly 200 new donors and an increased interest for sponsorships from our local business community, I feel confident Sacramento will be hearing positive signs of progress from the Philharmonic in the coming months,” said Hakes.

As director, Hakes will work with board fundraising chair Sandy Smoley and other board members, managing the second $150,000 phase of the Philharmonic’s fundraising campaign to achieve financial security and sustainability.

“In addition to our Phase One success, we’re almost 50 percent of the way toward our Phase Two goal,” said Smoley. “Jasmin will have a larger role in keep us all on task and supporting board fundraising efforts.”

Previous to joining the Sacramento Philharmonic, Hakes resided in Vienna and Sarajevo, where she worked as a political editor and freelance journalist. It was there that her appreciation for music as a medium to cross cultures formed.

“Living in the Balkans, one is forced to confront discord and disagreement on an almost daily basis. Music performances were one of the few opportunities to participate in something that united instead of divided,” said Hakes. Instead of renewing her political career upon her return to the States, Hakes was drawn to the Sacramento Philharmonic, whose mission to build community through music is a distinguishing feature of the orchestra.

The Sacramento Philharmonic Orchestra is the professional symphonic orchestra for the Sacramento region and was founded in 1997.
