Posted on February 20, 2019
EUGENE, OR (December 10, 2018)—The Board of Directors of the Eugene Symphony and Executive Director Scott Freck are pleased to announce three new staff members: Stephanie Domurat, Marketing & Communications Director; Tegan DeBolt, Development & Fundraising Manager; Mary Scarpinato, Finance & Administrative Director.
Stephanie Domurat, Marketing & Communications Director Stephanie Domurat comes to the Eugene Symphony with a decade of experience in media and communications. Before joining the team in December, she worked as an Evening Anchor at KMTR-TV, the NBC affiliate in Eugene, where she won a regional Emmy for her work as a journalist. Beyond her eight years in journalism, she has also gained professional experience in the non-profit sector, serving as a Community Education Manager for a social service non-profit in Irvine, CA. Stephanie is a life-long music enthusiast, and began her college career as a voice major before switching to Television and Broadcast Journalism for her bachelor’s degree from Chapman University. She grew up singing in a professional children’s choir and is excited about her return to working in the Arts. She says, “I was inspired and impressed when I first heard the talent and excellence of the Eugene Symphony several years ago and now am thrilled to be a part of their dedicated team. I look forward to further connecting the Symphony with the community and working to enrich lives with music.”
Tegan DeBolt, Development & Fundraising Manager Tegan DeBolt started her career in Sydney, Australia where she studied cross-cultural management and international business at Macquarie University. She comes to the Eugene Symphony after working in Lexington, Kentucky's nonprofit community for six years, previously at the Lexington Philharmonic, the Kentucky Environmental Foundation, and the Markey Cancer Foundation where she expanded her skill set in fundraising and communications. “I was drawn to the Eugene Symphony because of its position as the heart and soul of Eugene's creative culture,” DeBolt says. On the weekends, you can find her standing in a river somewhere fly fishing for trout, mountain biking, and traveling to as many new places as she can. DeBolt joined the Eugene Symphony Association in September 2018.
Mary Scarpinato, Finance & Administrative Director Mary has a BS in Finance from the University of Maryland and over 20 years’ experience in accounting including serving as Chief Financial Officer for an endowment with offices in both New York City and Hong Kong.

Skilled in revamping business processes for efficiency, she has implemented several accounting software transitions and restructured multiple departments. In her career she has gained experience in the franchise industry, the hospitality industry, and not-for-profit accounting. Most recently Mary served as Finance Director for Head Start of Lane County before beginning this new role in September 2018. Mary is excited to join the Symphony team, saying, “I am so looking forward to working with such an amazing group of dedicated people bringing powerful musical experiences to everyone in our community.”
