David Hyslop has a new orchestra

America’s busiest manager – formative chief in St Louis and Minnesota, now fireman to burned-out bands – has just joined the South Dakota Symphony Orchestra as interim chief executive.

David just loves running orchestras. He has been doing it for 53 years.

  • They’re doing the Mahler 8th in April. Long gone are the days when only the biggest orchestras could tackle such repertoire. Road trip!

    • I love it. Makes me want to go to S.D. just to see/hear it. I could always go see Mt. Rushmore in the process.

    • Dang, I live just over the border in Iowa. You are so right – **ROAD TRIP!!!**

      (Assuming there isn’t a snow storm. April 8 is still pretty early.)

  • Be careful, Norman. When David was twenty-one he may have asked a female member of the flute section out on a date and actually told her she was “very pretty.” According to our latest SJW #MeThree standards, that’s outright sexual assault. Please don’t tell Mental Midgette at the WaPo.

    • I’m sure you’re proud that, this time, it only took you two hours to come up with that comment.

      Let me guess: you voted for cretin donald, right?

    • It’s come to the point in the ‘work place’ where it’s best to have a witness with you – if you’re a man talking to a woman – if you have anything more to say than just “hello” and “how are you today?”. I’m really not joking. Anything and everything can, as does, get misconstrued.

  • While true in some cases, Sioux Falls is not burned out. In fact, it has had a remarkable turnaround in fortunes under Jennifer Boomgaarden. She now moves on to Omaha, which is also in a strong position. Undoubtedly, Jennifer will make it stronger.

  • David, my friend, if you keep at it, pretty soon you will have hit all 50 states as ED!! God bless you! SD is lucky to have you; David G does fabulous there; he’s brought great programs to the Sioux Falls community.
