President & CEO
Utah Symphony | Utah Opera
Steven Brosvik has been President & CEO of Utah Symphony | Utah Opera (USUO) since August 2020.
Prior to joining USUO, Brosvik was Chief Operating Officer of the Nashville Symphony from 2015 through 2020. In this role, he oversaw the orchestra, artistic, concert operations and production, education and community engagement, fundraising, marketing and communications teams. One of his primary external tasks was the development of artistic and community partnerships with other Nashville organizations. Under his leadership, the Nashville Symphony launched the Violins of Hope Nashville initiative, which engaged 25 community partners and served as a catalyst for 50 collaborative events reaching more than 125,000 people in the Middle Tennessee community and beyond. During his tenure, the Nashville Symphony has also planned, recorded and released more than a dozen recording projects, including Jennifer Higdon’s GRAMMY®-winning All Things Majestic, created artistic projects with the Nashville Ballet, and embraced a commitment to equity, diversity and inclusion that continues to have a profound effect on the organization’s mission, vision and artistic programming.
Prior to his role in Nashville, Brosvik was General Manager at the Houston Symphony from 2005 through 2015, Executive Director of the San Antonio Symphony, Vice President and General Manager of the Baltimore Symphony and an alumnus of the League of American Orchestras’ Management Fellowship Program. Outside of his work with orchestras, he spent ten years with Northwest and KLM Royal Dutch Airlines starting in customer service and finally managing the team tasked with rerouting passengers due to operational disruptions. Brosvik graduated from the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, Minnesota with a degree in Music Business, and studied piano performance and Dalcroze pedagogy in New York with Dr. Robert Abramson.
Brosvik’s wife, Cassandra, is a violinist and youth orchestra director, having run programs for over 15 years in both Texas and Tennessee. They have three daughters who study at George Washington University, New York University and Interlochen Arts Academy. The whole family loves to cook, take long walks with their dog Finley and humbly serve their cat Sinatra.
