Nicholas Kenny, Executive Director

Nick Kenny, Executive Director of the Greeley Philharmonic Orchestra, advocates for and fosters the importance of live symphonic music and its relevance in today’s media-centric culture. A musician of over 20 years, Nick recognizes the importance of music and its significance in our lives: from bedtime lullabies as an infant to graduation ceremonies, weddings, memorial services, and more. Though the arts are facing challenges worldwide, Nick has found success introducing new audiences to live symphonic performances via diverse and eclectic programming. Since 2017, Nick has increased concert revenue by over 25% through his efforts engaging the Greeley and Northern Colorado communities.

Nick has proven himself as an exceptional leader and advocate for his community, recognized as one of Northern Colorado’s 40 Under Forty (2018), Marquis’ Who’s Who in America (2018), Greeley Area Chamber Ambassador of the Month (March 2019), and Greeley Area Chamber Ambassador of the Year (2019). Along with his extensive development and networking experience, Nick is a passionate public speaker and presenter.

Nick volunteers in the National Park Service, is a member of the 501st Legion, and serves on various local and regional boards of directors. He also is an entertainer as a guest on radio shows and podcasts and hosts a variety of events such as themed trivia, Rock, Paper, Scissors tournaments, and adult spelling bees. In his free time, Nick is an ice hockey goaltender and enjoys hiking, cycling, and reading.

Nick, a native of Fort Wayne, Indiana, holds a Master of Music in Music Education from the University of Northern Colorado and a bachelor’s degree in Trumpet Performance from Manchester University.
