Director, Media and Public Relations

Suzanne Calvin

Suzanne Calvin has handled media and public relations for The Dallas Opera for more than a decade, following a similar stint at the Van Cliburn Foundation, where she managed media and publicity for the Eleventh Van Cliburn International Piano Competition and garnered personal praise in Moscow’s “Pravda” (June 2001) for her extraordinary information management.

Suzanne’s move to the performing arts followed a distinguished career in local news. One of the first women to be named news director in a top-ten media market, Ms. Calvin is the winner of numerous state and regional journalism awards. This “Texas Radio Hall of Fame” nominee (2002) is also an accomplished non-fiction writer and winner of the 1991 Texas Playwrights Festival.

Suzanne continues to engage local audiences as a moderator, writer and radio host, as well as in the Winspear Opera House where she serves as the official “Voice of The Dallas Opera.”
