Opera North Trustee  Gets National Award

Lebanon — Opera North Trustee Timothy J. Wagg has received the 2013 National Opera Trustee Recognition Award. Sponsored by Opera America and Bank of America, the award honors opera company trustees for exemplary leadership, support, and audience development on behalf of their opera companies and the communities they serve.

Wagg is “a true model of trustee excellence,” the company said in a recent news release. “His successful development of sponsors and underwriters for the season playbill, and his grasp of demographic data have greatly augmented Opera North’s revenues over the years. Tim recognizes the importance of developing ON’s patronage and is a staunch advocate for the company, inviting newcomers to explore what opera has to offer.”

During his 16-year tenure with the regional company, the Hanover resident has served as chairman of the Finance Committee and on the Board of Trustees and the Advisory Committee.

Wagg will be honored later this month at an awards dinner in New York City.
