The San Luis Obispo Symphony has a new Executive Director who joined the orchestra Monday.
Edmund Feingold has held similar positions at Boston Musica Viva, the Illinois Philharmonic Orchestra, and most recently the Monterey Symphony.
He takes over for interim Executive Director Maryellen Simkins who has run the organization since the departure of Jim Black in December 2012.
“Few regions the size of San Luis Obispo enjoy such a rich and ongoing tradition of arts, culture and place, and few institutions blend these traditions so well as our Symphony into one community of musicians, novice to expert," said Feingold in a media release. "We have some exciting years ahead.”
