Maestro moves: A Canadian baton leaves his US orchestramain
Jacques Lacombe has done his best with the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra over the past five years. He will tell them today he’s not prepared to renew in 2016.
Lacombe, 51, raised the organisation’s morale after a series of disasters involving dodgy Stradivari and short-stay chief executives. He has been getting better dates in Boston and beyond. Time to move on.
