CSMA hires new executive director

“As we move into a new and exciting growth phase, Ms. Grove’s strong nonprofit management and strategic planning skills, breadth of perspective and experience, and proven ability to build collaborations, partnerships and diverse teams will be invaluable to fulfillment of our goals,” said Debra Summers, chairwoman of the school’s board of directors.

Like her mother and grandmother, Grove grew up taking piano lessons and singing in her church choir in her native Virginia. She and her children have been immersed in the Bay Area’s jazz community, as performers and audience members, for many years.

“The arts have always been an important part of my life,” Grove said. “It is a great joy for me to be part of the CSMA community. I look forward to continuing and deepening CSMA’s leadership in making music and arts education accessible for all.”

Grove is a senior-level executive with financial, business development and social venture experience. She is former executive director of Child Advocates of Silicon Valley and most recently served as vice president of programs at ALearn, where she was responsible for the development, expansion and evaluation of supplemental education programs in 12 school districts in Santa Clara and San Mateo counties.

The community is invited to meet Grove at the Community School of Music and Art’s annual open house, scheduled 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Aug. 25 at Finn Center, 230 San Antonio Circle, Mountain View. The event will include art class demonstrations, student performances and tours of the facility.
