Please join the Promethean community in congratulating Brian Pastor on their years of leadership! Brian’s 6-year tenure as Artistic Director has seen us through a period of welcome constancy and amazing growth, and for that we will be forever grateful.

Brian and founding member/Associate Artistic Director, Nicole Hand, have led Promethean in a joint capacity for the past year. Now, due to family circumstances, Brian will withdraw from their leadership role and resume the position of ensemble member, effective November 1, 2020. At that time, Nicole will begin functioning as Interim Artistic Director. A new PTE Artistic Director will be announced in June 2021.

We are extremely lucky to have a talented and qualified ensemble member prepared to step into the leadership role, and to have an out-going Artistic Director available to advise and consult during the changeover. While Promethean values change, we also value stability. This orderly and planned transition allows us to have both.

So huzzah for Nicole, and welcome back to the ensemble, dear Brian! We look forward to many more years of artistic collaboration with both of you. Together we’ll keep the creative fires burning bright.
