Just in: Minnesota Orchestra names new bossmain
Kevin Smith, former head of Minnesota Opera, will step in as interim president when Michael Henson clears out in the summer. The post is short-term while the orch searches for a permanent leader. Smith headed the Minn Opera for 25 years, retiring in 2011. He’ll know most of the local donors and enough of the musicians to keep the ship on an even keel until the long, hard work of rebuilding can begin.
