With the departure of Music Director and Conductor Robin Fountain at the end of the 2019-2020 season, the Southwest Michigan Symphony Orchestra's search for a replacement has yielded four strong candidates with impressive credentials.
Each of the finalists has been invited to conduct concerts during the 2020-2021 season. Audience members and orchestra members will be given the opportunity to provide their feedback through surveys for each conductor.
We value our patrons and believe that being a part of the process is both valuable and necessary to choose
the BEST candidate for the next SMSO Music Director.
