Fort Worth Opera announced Feb. 28 that Paula Parkman Parrish, a Certified Fund Raising Executive, has joined the company as the new director of development.

Parrish formerly was executive director of the Catholic Diocese of Fort Worth Advancement Foundation.

“I am absolutely thrilled to be serving the Fort Worth Opera,” Parrish said in the announcement. “I have a passion for the performing and visual arts, so helping the Opera company that has so brilliantly been resurrected by the new general director, Tuomas Hiltunen, is a real honor. Fort Worth holds my heart dear. And between the Cowboys and Culture personas that permeate this city, I find that Fort Worth has it all.”

Parrish comes to Fort Worth Opera with around three decades of experience in fundraising, education, marketing and communication.

Parrish is a seasoned veteran of numerous successful capital, annual, endowment, marketing, and planned giving campaigns.

She is an alumna of Leadership Fort Worth, Class of 2008, and has chaired the Texas Commission on the Arts Grants Panel for two years. Parrish is a member of the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) and served as president of the Greater Fort Worth 10-Star Chapter in 2010.

Founded in 1946, Fort Worth Opera is the oldest continually-performing opera company in Texas, and one of the 14 oldest opera companies in the United States.
