A veteran of the San Diego Symphony, Old Globe and San Diego Opera, he will be the society’s fourth top leader since 2018.

The La Jolla Music Society hardly needed to look beyond its own backyard to find Todd Schultz, who today is being named the 52-year-old arts organization’s new president and CEO.

Schultz, 54, has spent the past year as the senior vice president of development for the McCallum Theatre in Palm Desert. Before that, he was the San Diego Symphony’s vice president of institutional advancement from 2015 to 2019, the Old Globe’s director of development from 2004 to 2015, and San Diego Opera’s director of marketing and public relations from 1994 to 2000.

“I know what La Jolla Music Society has achieved and what its strengths are, and I’m very excited,” Schultz told the Union-Tribune.

“The repertoire the society presents — be it classical, jazz, Broadway, dance, Latin music or any other genre — is open to anyone who responds to it, and our goal is to ensure that the society is a resource for everyone in the region.
