Donald Barra, the founder of the San Diego Chamber Orchestra, will step down as artistic director at the end of the 2004-05 season, the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Founded in 1984, the 36-member group performs regularly in the San Diego area and has made a series of recordings for Koch International Classics.

A search committee chaired by board vice-president S. Gay Hugo-Martinez will seek Barra's replacement. "He has done an outstanding job," board president Elsie Weston told the Union-Tribune. "It will be a hard role to fill."
