Newport, RI; December 4, 2015 – The Board of Directors of the Newport Music Festival elected Virginia Gambale as President at its meeting on December 4th. She is the 8th President in the Festival’s 46-year history.

Before going on to earn a masters degree in mathematics and computer science at the New York Institute of Technology, Ms. Gambale studied piano performance at The Juilliard School and the Hartt School of Music.
