Rubardt celebrates 20 seasons with Pensacola Symphony

Posted on: September 28, 2016

“The Pensacola Symphony Orchestra will kick off the 2016-17 season with their Opening Night performance on this Saturday,” writes Sandra Averhart in a story posted Wednesday (9/28) at radio station WUWF (Northwest Florida). “This will be the orchestra’s 20th season under the direction of Music Director Peter Rubardt. Prior to his appointment in Pensacola, Rubardt served four seasons as Associate Conductor of the Syracuse Symphony Orchestra and three seasons as Resident Conductor of the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra.… Rubardt says when he reflects on his twenty years, he thinks about his own evolution as a music director and his understanding of the role that an orchestra plays in a community. Also, he’s proud of the increased professionalism of the entire organization. ‘So, in terms of the quality of the performances that we do, the way in which we interact with the community, the facilities we use, the quality of the players that come, the guest artists; everything about it has just steadily evolved to become a powerhouse regional orchestra, which is just a great place to be,’ said Rubardt.”
