45: Creating Meaningful Work with Maria Sensi Sellner

July is just around the corner! Who could’ve thought that six months of 2022 had gone by so quickly?

I remember so many of my New Year’s resolutions and I know I have to catch up with all of these goals. However, such “chasing-the-goal” action should not compromise one’s mental health and happiness. It should not also sacrifice your life’s purpose.

In this episode of the Conductor’s Podcast, conductor Maria Sensi Sellner shares with us how she navigated life despite experiencing burnout and how you can learn from her experience as well.

Conductor Maria Sensi Sellner’s artistry, versatility, and reputation for innovation are making her a sought-after collaborator and an impresario for the 21st century. She is a proud alum of The Dallas Opera’s Hart Institute for Women Conductors. Maria is the Artistic & General Director of Resonance Works, the multi-modal performing arts company she founded in her native Pittsburgh in 2013; and a frequent cover conductor for the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra. 

The 2021-22 season includes a growing number of company debuts – including Portland Opera, Opera Steamboat, Fargo-Moorhead Opera, Raylynmor Opera, and the University of Missouri-Kansas City – conducting her favorite mix of Verdi, bel canto, and contemporary opera repertoire.
