San Angelo Symphony executive director resigns

Posted on: June 17, 2011

In Friday’s (6/17) San Angelo Standard-Times (Texas), Matthew Waller writes, “Barely two weeks before the San Angelo Symphony’s biggest concert of the year, its executive director, Charlotte Lewis, has resigned. Lewis, who has been in the position two years, stepped aside Tuesday. San Angelo Symphony President Delilah Harper said she couldn’t comment on the reason Lewis left because it is a personnel issue. … Her departure from the symphony is a loss, said board member David Scott, who was the president of the symphony before June 1 and is head of Angelo State University’s Art and Music Department. … Her leaving comes at a busy season for the San Angelo Symphony, with the 24th annual July 3rd Pops Concert presented by Multi-Chem coming up. The concert, which includes a fireworks presentation, annually draws tens of thousands of people and is one of the largest Independence Day events in the state. … The symphony expects to hire an interim director within days, Harper said. A search for a permanent executive director will come soon after that, Scott said.”
