The US conductor Fawzi Haimor has resigned from the Württembergische Philharmonie Reutlingen with immediate effect.

Haimor, 37, had been music director for three years, and was signed on until 2024. Last summer, his wife gave birth to a son.

A WPR orchestra manager said, ‘we understand that in these pandemic-plagued times he sees the center of his life close to his family, whose health he is concerned about.’

The orchestra is casting around for guest conductors for the rest of the season.
