Hone Named to Opera SB Board
By Opera Santa Barbara
Daniel Hone, a longtime professor of physics at UC Santa Barbara, has been elected to the Board of Directors for Opera Santa Barbara. His three-year term began in May.
Born in San Francisco, Mr. Hone completed his undergraduate studies at UC Berkeley before earning a master’s degree and a doctorate in physics at the University of Illinois. He joined the faculty at UC Santa Barbara in 1968 after completing a postdoctoral fellow
ship at École Normale Supérieure in Paris and serving as an assistant professor at the University of Pennsylvania. He has also held temporary academic appointments at the University of Paris, Oxford University, and Tokyo University. Among other administrative posts at UC Santa Barbara, he has served as Physics Department chairman, deputy director of the Institute for Theoretical Physics, and associate dean of the College of Letters and Science. Mr. Hone has been a Board director for Camerata Pacifica, Planned Parenthood, and Ensemble Theatre.
“Dan Hone’s service on the finance committees at several Santa Barbara nonprofits has yielded specialized skills that he’ll doubtless put to good use as an Opera Santa Barbara Board member. His passion for opera and his support of our company over the years is greatly appreciated. I’m delighted to welcome Dan to the OSB Board. He’s a terrific addition,” said Chair Nancy M. Golden.
