General manager Weinstock to retire from Cincinnati Symphony

Posted on: January 12, 2011

In Tuesday’s (1/11) Cincinnati Enquirer, Janelle Gelfand reports, “The Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, which is conducting a search for a new music director to succeed Paavo Järvi, is now also searching for a key member of its administrative team. Janell Weinstock, vice president and general manager of the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra for more than 10 years, announced on Tuesday that she will retire, effective Aug. 5. The orchestra has formed a search committee to replace her. Weinstock, 58, said Tuesday that it was an honor to be part of the CSO and May Festival, and to work with its exceptional artistic leaders, staff and musicians, but it was time to move on. … Weinstock joined the orchestra in March of 2001, a few months before Järvi began his tenure as music director. … She has accompanied the orchestra on six international tours and six domestic tours, including trips to Carnegie Hall. She oversaw three nationally televised PBS broadcasts, including Järvi’s inaugural concert as CSO music director in 2001. During her tenure, the symphony orchestra released 17 recordings, including the inaugural release, ‘American Portraits,’ on the orchestra’s own label, which will be in stores nationwide on Jan. 25.”
