Q&A: What’s something interesting about you that isn’t on your resume? “I am also a musician. I play flute and direct the handbell choir at my church, Chester Bethel UMC.”

Following the retirement of Executive Director Mark Fields in 2022, The Grand Opera House looked to Pamelyn Manocchio to lead the historic 151-year-old arts center. She had served for 12 years as the arts center’s director of community engagement, overseeing The Grand’s outreach and education programs with the community, including school matinees, summer camps, and rotating visual art exhibitions that serve more than 30,000 youth and adults annually. Manocchio also launched several impactful new programs, including Summer in the Parks in Wilmington and sensory-friendly performances specifically designed to serve children and adults with autism spectrum disorder. Late this year, Manocchio announced that she was stepping down from The Grand to pursue other opportunities.
