Boston Baroque Names New Executive Director

English arts executive Sarah Radcliffe-Marrs comes to the position from the vocal ensemble Blue Heron


Sarah Radcliffe-Marrs will step into the role at Boston Baroque on November 1, 2023 — just in time for the ensemble's 50th-anniversary season, which will feature works such as Beethoven's Symphony No. 9 and Mozart's Don Giovanni.

Radcliffe-Marrs comes to the role from a position as the Executive Director of Blue Heron, a Gramophone Award-winning vocal ensemble specializing in Renaissance and medieval vocal music. Across fifteen years of service in the industry, she has also held positions at the Celebrity Series of Boston, the Boston Symphony Orchestra, and the BBC Proms & Radio.

She holds both undergraduate and master's degrees in music from the University of Oxford and has worked for the Royal College of Music and the BBC Symphony Orchestra.

"We are thrilled to welcome Sarah into the Boston Baroque family at this pivotal juncture in our 50-year history," said Carla Heaton, the President of the Board of Directors. "Following the organization’s transformation under prior Executive Director Jennifer Ritvo Hughes, Sarah will nimbly lead Boston Baroque through its next stage of growth and innovation."

"I am thrilled to have been appointed Executive Director of Boston Baroque, an ensemble I have long admired, in this, its 50th year," Radcliffe-Marrs said. "As we look to the future, I am inspired by the many exciting prospects ahead, and eager to continue to build on the phenomenal reputation that Martin Pearlman and the orchestra have established."
