Minnesota Orchestra desperately seeks CEO

The orchestra yesterday announced its third year of budget surplus under interim chief exec Kevin Smith.

But Smith, who came out of retirement to repair the orchestra after a bitter lockout, is now 67 and wants out. He will leave next summer. The orchestra has just announced a search for his successor, which is a bit late.

A call to Catherine French (pictured)? Perhaps not.

Meanwhile, the annual report detailed a 2017 surplus of $79,000 on a $32.6 million budget.

    Cathy French is not doing the Minnesota Orchestra search.

    Issacson and Miller is the firm doing the search.

      Good to know. Thanks, David.

    Why isn’t Hyslop & Associates doing the search? You were the CEO of the Minnesota Orchestra for about 12 or 13 years. 🙂 🙂

      Am helping the Houston Symphony as it recovers from the flood and that’s enough on the plate, job wise, at 75 and counting !
