The San Francisco Symphony has snatched Houston’s CEO to be its next chief.

Mark Hanson, 43, starts in September, it was announced late on Friday.

It’s a good call for San Fran, but Houston, who recently lost  longtime Director of Artistic Planning Aurelie Desmarais, is looking a bit shaky.

    Congratulations to Mr. Hanson!

    Norman, when you say that they “lost” Aurelie Desmarais, has she moved to another job or retired?

    Photo taken in the Santiago Calatrava addition to the Milwaukee Art Museum during Mr. Hanson’s time with the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra. An amazing building!

      It looks like a medical implantation for terminally ill patients.
