Posted on: December 3, 2019

“The South Bend Symphony Orchestra announced Monday that Justus Zimmerman has been named its new executive director,” reads an unsigned Monday (12/2) South Bend Tribune (IN) article. “He replaces Agnieszka Rakhmatullaev, who left in August after four years with the orchestra. Zimmerman most recently served as the director of marketing and communications with the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, where he oversaw a digital transformation, a strategic rebrand and the launch of the critically-acclaimed SESSION series, which features LACO musicians performing works by contemporary composers in non-concert hall settings. Now in its 87th season and third with music director Maestro Alastair Willis, the SBSO won the Community Foundation of St. Joseph County’s 2019 Leighton Award for Non-profit Excellence. Zimmerman begins work Jan. 6.”
