St. Louis Symphony Names Louisville Orchestra Manager to VP Post

Classic Arts News   St. Louis Symphony Names Louisville Orchestra Manager to VP Post
 
The Saint Louis Symphony has appointed Robert McGrath, currently the general manager of the Louisville Orchestra, to its own vice president and orchestra manager position, the SLSO announced yesterday.

McGrath replaces Susan Lim, who left in November. He will take up his new post on March 20; his responsibilities will include the negotiation of musicians' contracts, production, and artistic planning.

A member of the Louisville Orchestra staff since June 2004, McGrath has also worked for Chicago's Music of the Baroque and the Boston Symphony. He was trained as a bassoonist at the New England Conservatory.

McGrath leaves the Louisville Orchestra as it faces a crisis: In January, management cut short contract negotiations and announced that the orchestra would consider declaring bankruptcy and shutting down. Talks have since resumed with the help of a mediator.
