Dawn Wolski, General & Artistic Director


Dawn Wolski has served as the General and Artistic Director of Inland Northwest Opera (INO) since 2017. She has led the organization during its re-branding from Opera Coeur d’Alene to Inland Northwest Opera, broadening its reach of professional opera across Eastern Washington and Northern Idaho.


With a focus on sustainability, infrastructure, community engagement and education, INO audiences and revenues have grown exponentially during her leadership. Leading roles have included acclaimed talent from major markets. Under her tenure, the operating budget has more than doubled with productions such as H.M.S. Pinafore, Tosca, Carmen, The Merry
Widow, The Marriage of Figaro, Così fan tutte and Madame Butterfly.


Dawn joined INO on the heels of a successful international singing career, performing two dozen opera roles, multiple concert works and appeared on television programs in Europe, China, and the U.S. Dawn served two enlistments in U.S. Army where she performed with the London Symphony, Boston Symphony, National Symphony, and the Cincinnati Symphony. She
has shared the stage with a variety of performers such as Julie Andrews, Wayne Brady, Wynonna Judd, Pam Tillis, Chris Isaak, as well as several U.S. presidents. She holds a Master of Music Degree from Manhattan School of Music in NYC, and a BA in Music from St. Mary’s College of Maryland.
