Posted on: June 4, 2010

On Thursday (6/3) on the Press-Enterprise website (San Bernardino, California), Jennifer Dean reports, “Carlotta Mellon, executive director of the San Bernardino Symphony Orchestra, announced her retirement today, effective Nov. 1. She has been with the symphony for three years. Prior to that, she was executive director of the Sam and Alfreda Maloof Foundation for Arts and Crafts. … Mellon bought a home in Carmel with her husband, Knox Mellon, a few years ago and they decided since he will turn 85 in October it was time to retire and enjoy the home. … She is looking forward to the move, but will miss her time with the symphony, she said. ‘It’s a wonderful organization with a great conductor, great musicians and a very dedicated, excellent board of directors,’ Mellon said. ‘I’m going to miss the people involved, miss the music, and just helping the organization grow and fulfill its mission. It’s been a real privilege.’ The symphony is currently screening possible candidates for the executive director position.”
