Disc slipped | Another British manager falls in America

A week after Simon Woods resigned as executive director of the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Paul Meecham announced that he will leave the Utah Symphony next week – apparently because the music director is leaving and cannot face another search process.

Paul was formerly head of Baltimore and Seattle. Previously, in a 40-year career, he directed the Liverpool Phil and the London Sinfonietta.

Paul said: "I had a great time with USUO, with its unique blend of Symphony, Opera and Deer Valley® Music Festival. In making this decision, it's definitely a bitter-sweet moment. However, after a very satisfying career in the field of the orchestra that has lasted for almost 40 years, I would like to explore new paths. And with the recent announcement by Thierry Fischer that he would give up as music director at the end of the 2021-22 season, my decision will allow the next president and CEO l & # 39; opportunity to see through the research process and the appointment of his successor. "

Other British managers available in the United States include Tony Woodcock and Michael Henson of Minnesota.

Less available are the two previous leaders of the Orpheus Ensemble: Graham Parker who is now head of Uinversal Classics in the United States and Dr. Krishna Thiagarajan, president of the Seattle Symphony.
