Sakurako Fisher is leaving after 11 years as president of the San Francisco Symphony. V-P Priscilla B. Geeslin will step up to replace her a year from now when Esa-Pekka Salonen arrives as music director.

    These tacky headlines as of late would make the NY tabloids blush…….

    We’d like to shed the reality show Prez as well.

    President in San Francisco is presumably a board, not an executive, position. 11 years is a long time to hold that job, and the arrival of a new music director is probably a good time for transition.

    Sakurako Fisher had been SF Symphony president since 2012, not ’11 years’.
