ANCHORAGE, AK – The Anchorage Concert Association has named Laura Carpenter as its new marketing director. Laura Carpenter has been working in communications in Alaska for more than a decade, from technical writing and public affairs to reviewing and covering Anchorage Concert Association shows for the Anchorage Daily News. Most recently Carpenter was the marketing and public relations manager for the Anchorage Museum at Rasmuson Center, where she was the main media and advertising contact for the museum, helping to bring more than 200,000 visitors to the museum each year.
At the Anchorage Concert Association, Carpenter will develop audiences for and increase awareness of the concert association’s varied annual programming and events. The upcoming season features everything from classical groups to YouTube stars. Among the returning favorites are Portland Cello Project, David Sedaris and Garrison Keillor, as well as can’t-miss picks Kristin Chenoweth, Cherish the Ladies: A Celtic Christmas, Cirque Mechanics: Pedal Punk, Hot Sardines, and comedy legend John Cleese.
