Our dual leadership

In most orchestras, the positions of Music Director and Conductor are almost always held by the same person. We have had an unusual leadership structure for many years, with Herb serving as our music director and George as our conductor. (The Music Director is responsible for selecting the music, and of course the Conductor leads most of the performances.) With Herb’s recent move to Texas, his role has been renamed “Artistic Director” and music selection is becoming a shared activity under Herb’s guidance.
