CHARLOTTE SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA
APPOINTS NEW EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
The Charlotte Symphony Orchestra has named Devorah Kermisch its new Executive Director. She comes to the symphony with extensive executive experience in orchestra, arts and non-profit leadership in Ohio and Tampa. “The orchestra is in its prime for growth and Devorah’ s direct experience working with symphonies and other art institutions will position us well for that growth. She is knowledgeable, intuitive and quite a visionary. I am very pleased to have her join the symphony family” said, Ken Barber the Charlotte Symphony Orchestra’s Board Chairman.
Devorah commented, “The Charlotte Symphony Orchestra is Charlotte County’s best kept secret. The Symphony is fortunate to have the talents of fine musicians from around the country and the leadership of Maestro Ponti. The Symphony provides outreach, education, and enrichment programs for our community. These improve the general quality of our life, enhance civic pride, provide a selling/recruiting point for realtors and businesses looking to bring in employees from other places, and enhance the economy by bringing in people to stay in hotels and patronize restaurants. The symphony and all arts are an economic generator and a point of civic pride. It is my goal to help our great symphony flourish.”
The orchestra’s 2017-2018 concert season begins with “A Salute to Our Armed Forces” on November 12 at the Charlotte Performing Arts Center, 701 Carmalita St., in Punta Gorda.
