A H O L LY J O L LY C E L E B R AT I O N : A C-Suite Christmas December 9, 2020


A Note From

AMY CARENZA C-Suite Christmas Event Chair & Managing Director, Corporate & Institutional Banking, PNC

W

elcome to our second-annual C-Suite Christmas event! Despite the many challenges we have all faced this year, we are so thrilled to join with you in celebration of the resiliency demonstrated by business, the arts and our community at-large. Thanks to the remarkable leadership of Kim Noltemy, Ross Perot President & CEO of the Dallas Symphony, and Board Chair, Sanjiv Yajnik, President, Capital One Financial Services, and the dedication of the business leaders you will see on stage tonight, we have brought C-Suite Christmas back for its second year with a broader audience and strengthened commitment to the community. With a new partnership with Bloomberg Television, families around the nation will have the opportunity to hear tonight’s programming and support the music students in Southern Dallas that this program benefits. C-Suite Christmas is a one-of-a-kind event where leaders from North Texas companies have the opportunity to join the DSO on stage and be integral contributors to the performance. We are grateful for each of tonight’s executives for their role in this annual tradition. They bring to the stage a wonderful diversity of business experience but share in common a solution-oriented approach to life and a courage that is both unstoppable and contagious. I cannot think of a better celebration of their remarkable leadership – which was so evident during the events of this year – than to watch them demonstrate their artistry and talent with the members of your Dallas Symphony Orchestra. Thank you for joining us tonight. Happy C-Suite Christmas!

Ava Pine

SOPRANO Soprano Ava Pine has enjoyed a rich and varied career on both concert and operatic stages, dazzling audience and critics alike with her rewarding vocalism and commitment to character. Ava first appeared with the Dallas Symphony in 2007 singing the Fauré Requiem, and has returned for performances of Handel’s Messiah, the Mozart Requiem, and multiple seasons of Christmas Pops concerts, which she holds as some of her most joyous musical experiences. Equally gifted in both baroque style and contemporary expression, Ava made

both genres the foundation of her operatic career, with notable roles including Anna Sørenson in Silent Night with Fort Worth Opera and Atlanta Opera, Cleopatra in Giulio Cesare with Fort Worth Opera and Florentine Opera, the Young Girl in the world premiere of After Life with Music of Remembrance and UrbanArias, and lesser known Handel roles with Boston Baroque. Her most recent collaboration with the group, performing Iphis in Jephtha, was hailed by the Boston Globe for “gorgeous lyricism and silvered ornaments,” making “the whole show worth seeing.” In addition, Ava has performed leading operatic roles with Dallas Opera, Florida Grand Opera, Chicago Opera Theatre, Kansas City Lyric Opera, Opera Colorado and Tulsa Opera, among many others. She received a GRAMMY nomination for her 2011 recording with Ars Lyrica of Houston, singing the title role of Cleopatra in Hasse’s Marc’ Antonio e Cleopatra. She made her European debut with the BBC Symphony Orchestra as The Angel in the UK premiere of Angels in America, a role she first debuted with Fort Worth Opera. In 2017 Ava left singing as a full-time career and now balances musical performances with her work as a bone marrow transplant nurse for New York-Presbyterian Hospital.
