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.
