The Philharmonic says, ‘Krieger’s accomplishments in Victoria, British Columbia, include taking the symphony to the next level by leading the creation of a strong strategic plan and mission statement development. He achieved surpluses in every year of his tenure, increasing development revenue and growing individual giving from $150,000 in 2009 to over $1 million in 2014-15.’ … Krieger earned a Bachelor of Music degree from the Manhattan School of Music and a Master of Fine Arts degree from the California Institute of the Arts.” Says Krieger, “The Savannah Philharmonic has achieved so much in just a few years, and the large following and undeniable support these talented musicians enjoy is amazing.”
