The orchestra yesterday announced its third year of budget surplus under interim chief exec Kevin Smith.
But Smith, who came out of retirement to repair the orchestra after a bitter lockout, is now 67 and wants out. He will leave next summer. The orchestra has just announced a search for his successor, which is a bit late.
A call to Catherine French (pictured)? Perhaps not.
Meanwhile, the annual report detailed a 2017 surplus of $79,000 on a $32.6 million budget.
