Santa Barbara Chamber Orchestra Starts Search for Executive Director

The Santa Barbara Chamber Orchestra has formed a search committee tasked with finding and hiring an executive director.

The chamber orchestra, which has performed well-known classical repertoire and hosted world-class soloists since 1978, recently decided to change direction from a grassroots to a professionally-managed organization.

Hiring a full-time executive director is the first step toward this change.

“We are dedicated to ensuring the chamber orchestra’s future growth and success, and believe this can best be done with a full-time professional executive director,” said Peter Favero, head of the search committee.

“Our volunteers have been truly outstanding, dedicated individuals,” he said. “We want to maintain the small-town, local feel of the chamber orchestra while adding the extra vision and organization of an executive director.”

Signaling the commitment to recruit a leader to take the chamber orchestra to a new level of institutional impact, the search committee selected Arts Consulting Group, a nationally-recognized search firm that specializes in searches for leaders in the arts and culture sector to participate in the search.

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.
