CLINTON SMITH, artistic director and principal conductor of the St. Cloud (Minn.) Symphony Orchestra since September 2012, will step down from that post on May 5, 2016. He intends to focus on his full-time position as music director and marketing/development director at Orchestra Seattle and the Seattle Chamber Singers, and on a busy schedule of guest conducting. The orchestra is conducting a search for his successor. It expects to engage finalists for the position as guest conductors in the 2016-17 season.
