A third senior executive has quit Chicago in what is starting to look like mass flight.
First, Deborah Rutter resigned as president to take over the Kennedy Center.
Then Martha S. Gilmer quit as artistic v-p to go off and run San Diego Symphony.
Now, the CSO’s #3, artistic administrator Nick Winter has announced he’s heading off to the San Francisco Symphony.
Andrew Patner, reporting the latest move, says there’s no sign of progress in landing a new president. We have a list of almost a dozen candidates who refused to be considered for the vacancy. Could it be a collective dread of Chicago winters?
