Detroit loses Veep

Vice-president Paul Hogle is leaving the Detroit Symphony to become president of the Cleveland Institute of Music.

Hogle, 51, was deputy to Anne Parsons in Detroit and a vital part of the team that dragged the orchestra from insolvency to relative prosperity. Another $2 million gift dropped throught the mailbox only this week.

But with Leonard Slatkin stepping down as music director and Parsons, 57, showing no sign of moving on, Hogle seized the chance to be boss of his own institution.

CIM is under temporary management this year, Gary Hanson having stepped in as interim president after leaving the Cleveland Orchestra.

    • If you have been to either community you would know that moving to Cleveland is [unfortunately] a step up.

  • As a faculty member of the Cleveland Institute of Music and a member of The Cleveland Orchestra I’m excited about Paul Hogle coming to town. As he settles into town, he will find a city on the rise, just ranked as one of the top cities in the US for high paying jobs (Glass Door website). He will have the opportunity to hear a world-class orchestra every week, visit an art museum with a world-class collection and FREE ADMISSION, hike in one of the many Metro Parks that ring the city, enjoy the burgeoning craft beer and restaurant scene, all for pennies on the dollar that you would spend in New York or any large European city.
