(PORT ANGELES) – After nine years under the baton of one conductor, The Port Angeles Symphony Orchestra is on the hunt to replace maestro, Adam Stern.
The symphony board decided not to renew Stern's contract this week.
Mary Ann Unger, President of the Board of Directors for the Orchestra, says they appreciated Stern's dedication to elevating the orchestra to new levels, but the board decided to take a new direction.
Unger says the orchestra will look to local individuals with conducting experience to fill the gap until a permanent replacement is found.
The Port Angeles Symphony Orchestra was founded in 1932 and began with a few fiddlers and horn players performing light opera and Sousa marches. Today they number just over 80 volunteer musicians.
