Posted on: May 22, 2019

“The Fox Valley Symphony Orchestra has found its next leader,” writes Shane Nyman in Tuesday’s (5/21) Post-Crescent (Appleton, WI). “Kevin Sütterlin, a 30-year-old conductor and educator who has taught and performed around the world, has been selected as the new music director. Sütterlin takes over the organization that for 23 years was under the leadership of Brian Groner, who [retired] in May 2018…. Sütterlin is director of orchestral activities and assistant professor of instrumental conducting at Concordia College in Moorhead, Minnesota. He’s also music director and conductor of the Concordia Orchestra and Concordia Opera. He has a doctorate in orchestral conducting from the University of Memphis Rudi E. Scheidt School of Music and is a founding co-music director of Sinfonietta Memphis, an ensemble providing free classical concerts and educational experiences… A native of Radolfzell, a small town in southern Germany, Sütterlin moved to the U.S. in 2012 and lives in Fargo, North Dakota, which borders Moorhead…. The symphony will begin its 2019-20 season on Sept. 21. Before that they’ll return to Fox Cities Stadium in Grand Chute for another free ‘Brats, Beer & Beethoven’ concert on July 5. That means Sütterlin’s first concert is less than two months away.”
