Angela Goldberg is a Buffalo native with a strong passion for local arts and music. Angela first came to the BPC in 2015 and worked as the group’s Business Manager for two years before becoming Managing Director in 2017. Angela is the first to hold the title of Managing Director and is the BPC’S first ever full-time employee.
A musician and artist herself, Angela grew up studying the violin, honing her photography skills, and writing fiction and poetry. Despite a deep love for music and the performing arts, she knew that being in front of an audience wasn’t quite the right fit for her. After working as an immigration legal assistant and a music reviewer and editor in Ithaca NY, Angela chose to pursue an MA in Arts Management, which she received from the University at Buffalo in 2017. While at the University at Buffalo, her coursework included non-profit management, music management, and theater management. She completed her fieldwork for the program with Chautauqua Institution. Angela also holds a BA in Writing from Ithaca College where she studied everything from poetry to grant writing.
Working in Arts Management has given Angela the opportunity to utilize her communication, organizational, and creative problem-solving talents within the context of the performing arts. Striving to continually develop her skills as an administrative arts leader, Angela has attended Chorus America conferences and is a member of the WNY chapter of the Association for Fundraising Professionals. When she isn’t working with the BPC, you can likely find her in the audience at Shea’s or at an ice rink practicing figure skating.
