Durham, a violinist, was a member of the St. Louis Municipal Theater orchestra from 1977 to 1989 and the Columbus Symphony Orchestra from 1979 to 1991. “Chris’s work with local officers on matters affecting orchestras of all sizes, and his ability to interact with large and small local unions, will prove invaluable as he serves the AFM’s orchestras and their locals,” said Thomas F. Lee, AFM’s president.
