Rolando Sanz's work bridging production, performance, and education has made him a performing arts visionary with rare perspective and a reputation as an unflappable leader. He is the executive producer of the world premiere of Andrew Lippa's newest work, I Am Anne Hutchinson / I Am Harvey Milk, starring Kristin Chenoweth at the Strathmore Music Center this April.

Producing credits include Songs for a New World starring Jason Robert Brown, Children of Eden with Stephen Schwartz, and operatic/Broadway mash-ups like West Side Story + Roméo et Juliette and Madama Butterfly + Miss Saigon. Sanz sings leading tenor roles at companies including Spoleto Festival USA, Florentine Opera, and Pacific Symphony, and recently joined the roster of the Metropolitan Opera. A lifelong Marylander, Sanz co-founded Young Artists of America, now the mid-Atlantic's premiere training organization for collaborative musicians.
