Posted on: November 17, 2020

“The Las Vegas Philharmonic has named an interim executive director to fill in following the departure of Lacey Huszcza, who’s leaving to fill that role with the Richmond Symphony in Virginia,” writes Christopher Lawrence in Friday’s (11/13) Las Vegas Review-Journal. “Tim Robinson, who’s spent more than 25 years working in live performing arts organizations, will help lead the Philharmonic until a replacement is found…. Over the years, Robinson has held executive and administrative roles with the likes of Cirque du Soleil, The Smith Center for the Performing Arts, Blue Man Group in New York and The Joffrey Ballet. He’s worked with the Philharmonic to help produce Fourth of July events.” Robinson also worked for Chicago’s Grant Park Music Festival and pursued a master’s degree in classical guitar performance at the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music. “Jerry Kohlenberger, the governance chairman of the orchestra’s executive committee who’ll be leading the nationwide search, said interpersonal skills and fundraising expertise will be crucial … as a result of the pandemic…. ‘We had been constantly improving attendance over the last couple of years,’ Kohlenberger said. ‘It’s clear that the orchestra had become, I think, a real staple for Las Vegas.’ ”
