Longtime Fort Worth Symphony Executive Director Returns as President

Classic Arts News   Longtime Fort Worth Symphony Executive Director Returns as President
 
Ann Koonsman, who was the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra's executive director for 24 years, has been appointed president, the orchestra announced.

Koonsman, a 62-year-old Fort Worth native, is a graduate of Texas Christian University and was a Fort Worth Symphony violinist in the 1970s. During her lengthy tenure in management, the orchestra's budget grew tenfold and it launched a year-round season.

Koonsman retired in 2004, but has served as acting interim president since the resignation in January of her successor, Katherine Akos.

Adele Hart, chairman of the executive committee, said, "We are fortunate that Ann was willing to step in on short notice as interim president, and we are thrilled to have her back on a more permanent basis."
