“USUO is an organization of great depth, history and service to the region,” he added. “My conversations with the search committee and members of the board, staff, orchestra and community have been a great introduction to the spirit of the organization…I look forward to working with everyone to build upon the great work already being done and to play my part in welcoming and engaging current and future audiences.”

“Steve’s calm and confident leadership, innovative programming ideas, decades of experience and industry knowledge make him ideally suited to lead USUO during this time,” said board chair Tom Love. “[His] leadership is a great opportunity for USUO as we march forward, enthusiastic for the future and committed to the day when the community can gather and experience live performances from the orchestra and opera again soon.”
