Kennett Symphony of Chester County announces finalists for music director Search

The Kennett Symphony of Chester County (KSCC) announced last September that Maestra Mary Woodmansee Green will retire as Music Director and Conductor of the KSCC at the close of our 2012-2013 season on August 31, 2013. We have enjoyed celebrating Maestra Green’s 25th Anniversary season all year long, and we know that our upcoming concert, Gershwin at the Gardens, on Saturday, August 10, 7:30pm, at Longwood Gardens, will be a special evening for Maestra Green, our Symphony, and our community. We look forward to seeing you on August 10th at Longwood!

Over the course of this current season, the KSCC formed a Music Director Search Committee and launched a national search for the music directorship.  The eight-member Search Committee, made up of KSCC musicians and board members, received over 100 applications from around the country, Canada, and Europe, and has spent the past seven months reviewing application materials and conducting interviews.

The first phase of the music director search is now complete, and we announce to you today that three finalists have been selected.  Each finalist will conduct a concert on the upcoming 2013-2014 season.

The three finalist candidates are:

Michael Hall

Rei Hotoda

David Alexander Rahbee

Additional details about the full 2013-2014 season, including our new season brochure and subscription renewals, will be coming soon.  Stay tuned!
