Santa Fe Symphony’s Daniel Crupi to become Asheville Symphony’s executive director in July

Posted on: May 4, 2021

“Daniel Crupi, executive director of the Santa Fe Symphony and Chorus, is leaving his position to become executive director of the Asheville Symphony Orchestra in Asheville, N.C., beginning in July,” reads an unsigned article in Saturday’s (5/1) Santa Fe New Mexican (NM). “Crupi came to Santa Fe in March 2019 from North Carolina’s Greensboro Symphony Orchestra, where he served as its chief operating officer. ‘Daniel’s tenure has been marked by creativity, innovation and collaboration,’ said Mike Dawson, symphony board president, citing new initiatives such as the group’s online concerts filmed at iconic New Mexico locations and last year’s 1:1 events, in which one orchestra member played a 10-minute program for one audience member. ‘[Crupi] leaves us a financially stronger, more nimble and vibrant organization,’ Dawson said. For Crupi, it’s a move to an organization with a somewhat larger budget but similarly scaled concert programs.”
