An orchestra goes through 9 CEOs in 12 yearsUncategorized
Some very dark rumblings re emerging from the Queensland Symphony in Australia, where musicians are challenging the high turnover of their executive leadership.
Nine CEOs in little over a decade seems pretty high churn, but that’s what the musicians claim.
After a number of confrontations with the musicians, four board members out of ten resigned and the rest agreed to go early in 2022.
They have yet to do so.
The last music director, Alondra de la Parra (pictured), lasted just two seasons.
Meantime, the QSO is now challenging Geneva and one or two others for the coveted SD title of World’s wort run orchestra.
