“The Association of California Symphony Orchestras (ACSO) has promoted Membership and Development Manager Sarah Weber to succeed Mitch Menchaca as executive director,” writes Sarah Shay in Monday’s (12/10) Musical America (subscription required). “He announced in October that he would be leaving to become executive director of arts and culture for the City of Phoenix, AZ. Weber starts January 1. In the two years she has worked with ACSO, Weber is credited with growing membership, raising funds, and contributing to programming initiatives. With an MA in history and museum studies from Arizona State University, Weber previously worked at the Musical Instrument Museum in Phoenix and the Peterson Automotive Museum in Los Angeles in creating education departments. ‘With careful consideration given to identifying candidates that might lead the organization,’ said Board President Sean Sutton, ‘we were fortunate not to have to look any further than our own back yard.’ Weber also trained as a violinist.”
