Sophie Heeden is currently the Concert Operations Coordinator for the Boston Symphony Orchestra where she works with the BSO, Boston Pops, and with their operations at Tanglewood in Lenox, MA. She also recently accepted the position of General Manager for the New England Philharmonic, a community orchestra in Boston focused on performing contemporary music. She has performed in the viola section with the New England Philharmonic, Brookline Symphony Orchestra, and the Boston Civic Symphony.
Something Sophie remembers from her time at Mason was how many opportunities she was presented with both as a violist and aspiring administrator. She performed in orchestra, operas, musicals, and chamber ensembles as well as being an orchestra librarian, ensemble manager, and artist services assistant during her 3.5 years.
