Raymond Harvey renews contract with KSO

Today, the Kalamazoo Symphony Orchestra announced a 4-year contract renewal with Music Director Raymond Harvey.  This contract extends Harvey's tenure to May, 2018.  

  "I've enjoyed 15 seasons as Music Director of the Kalamazoo Symphony Orchestra, and I'm thrilled to accept a four-year renewal of my contract.  I'm proud of this orchestra and its artistic growth over these years," says Harvey. 

"But, of equal importance is the impact we've made on so many different segments of the Kalamazoo community.  It's an honor for me to help shape the music that speaks to so many hearts."

Harvey's contract renewal follows two other recent top appointments at the KSO.  Earlier this spring, Susie Park was named KSO Concertmaster and Peter H. Gistelinck was named Executive Director.
