Today, leading global talent agency Wasserman Music has announced the promotion of eight members of its growing worldwide team to Agent and Touring roles across departments, as well as the creation of a first-of-its-kind dedicated Orchestral division.

Newly promoted Team Wass members across the agency’s expanding global business include Alex Christie (Agent), Annie Cole (Manager, Touring), Anna Kathryn Groom (Manager, Brand Partnerships), Owen Hynes (Manager, Tour Marketing), Kara Klein (Manager, Brand Partnerships), Noah Plotnicki (Agent), Lindsay Roblesi (Agent), and Holly Rowland (Agent).

Nurturing and advancing the careers of talented members of our global team is central to our culture of support and empowerment, so we’re proud to announce these well-earned promotions,” said Lee Anderson, Wasserman Music EVP & Managing Executive. “Continually creating new ways to super-serve our clients is our core mission, and it’s most gratifying when we’re able to do that by elevating exceptional Team Wass colleagues to serve them even better.

To further bolster and expand Wasserman Music’s worldwide Booking departments, Miami-based Agent Brittany Miller, who joined Wasserman Music precursor AM Only in 2014, moves to the agency’s global Festivals department as Director, Festivals, focusing on electronic music events around the world.

And in a first for a major talent agency, Wasserman Music today also announced the creation of a new dedicated Orchestral division headed by Vice President Emily Threlfall Yoon. The new division represents popular IP-driven symphonic properties like SQEX’s newly announced Final Fantasy VII REBIRTH World Orchestra Tour and the more than three dozen titles produced by Disney Concerts, including Marvel Studios’ brand new project, The Infinity Saga Concert Experience, as well as a diverse group of world-class conductors, orchestrators, and arrangers.

The unique new division will also partner with artists across Wasserman Music’s client roster, such as John Legend, Melissa Etheridge, Laufey, and Zedd, to conceive and produce entirely new popular programming symphonic projects that open new opportunities for artists, orchestras, and concert halls, and introduce symphonic performances to a wide new audience beyond the world of traditional classical music.

Says Lee Anderson, “Emily has been able to see the enormous opportunity in the live symphonic space beyond just talent booking. By working as a creative partner with artists and IP-driven properties - whether movies, TV, video games, or pop music - Emily and our new Orchestral division are taking the music that people love in their everyday lives and presenting it in exciting new ways to fans of all kinds.”
