Casey describes his role as essentially that of a storyteller. Writing grant proposals and donor communications is largely about collecting, crafting, and conveying the story of Sarasota Orchestra—who we have been, who we are now, and who we want to be in the future.
Education and Experience:
Casey earned a B.A. in Theatre/English from the University of Michigan. Before coming to the Orchestra, he was a Development Associate for Foundation Relations & Individual Giving at Asolo Repertory Theatre.
Favorite Classical Music Work:
"Johann Hummel – Concerto for Trumpet & Orchestra (E-Flat Major). As a young trumpet player, I grew up listening to this and absolutely idolizing Wynton Marsalis."
