Posted on: March 14, 2017

“There’s a new executive director pulling the strings at the Glacier Symphony and Chorale,” writes Molly Priddy in Thursday’s (3/9) Flathead Beacon (Kalispell, Montana). “Paul Larson, a recent transplant from Chicago, will take over the duties that [Alan] Satterlee held for the last 10 years…. Larson moved to the Flathead Valley in 2015 from Chicago, where he has served as president of Taylar Development, a national fundraising and marketing consulting firm specializing in performing arts and cultural organizations … with locations in Chicago and Milwaukee. Taylar’s client base has included over 76 arts organizations ranging from symphony orchestras in St. Louis, Nashville, Denver, Eugene and Dallas to theatre, opera, dance and visual arts companies in major cities across the U.S. … Larson developed and trained arts marketing staff on strategic fundraising campaigns, ticketing promotions and membership programs and designed proprietary software for arts marketing. He remains president of the company, but handed off day-to-day operation of it when he moved to Kalispell. Larson said that focusing on the arts for the past 14 years has given him a clear perspective on the important role they play in communities…. The GSC will begin its 35th season this summer.”
