Welcome Lou Watson to Team 3A!

Third Angle New Music is excited to welcome Lou Watson to the staff as the new Communications Coordinator. This position has previously been held by Evan Lewis and Kim Gumbel, both of whom did a tremendous job for the organization. Evan helped propel Third Angle to new heights with his expert grant writing and education skills. Kim stepped in over the summer in a temporary position and provided infrastructure with great organizational skills during a transition time. They both leave behind huge shoes to fill and we are grateful for all their hard work and now fondly wave them off to new career paths elsewhere.

Lou, a native of Suffolk, United Kingdom, is an artist and administrator who has previously worked as registrar at Dell’Arte School of Physical Theatre in Northern California, and collaborative designer with Wonderheads Theatre Company (Canada). Lou received her undergraduate degree in Media Arts from Pacific Northwest College of Art where her thesis show “Suite Sandy Boulevard” was awarded the Kayla Skinner Special Recognition Award from the Betty Bowen Committee (Seattle Art Museum). At Third Angle Lou's responsibilities will include patron communications, marketing and social media, box office and coordinating volunteers.

Lou says "I'm so excited to be working in the field of new music, and especially with Third Angle, who program work that is difficult to find anywhere else in Portland. The new season that Sarah Tiedemann has curated is anything but ordinary. Come and say hi to me at the next show!”
