Santa Barbara Symphony Executive Director David Grossman Submits Resignation

David Grossman, executive director of the Santa Barbara Symphony Orchestra Association, has announced his decision to resign from his position effective Oct. 31 to pursue new professional opportunities.

The Board of Directors supports Grossman in his decision to end his 3½-year tenure and thanks him for his dedicated service to the symphony.

The symphony board and its Executive Committee are working with Grossman to execute a well-thought-out leadership transition. The process will allow a broad executive search, which will put a leader in place to continue implementing the objectives of the symphony’s Strategic Plan.

Among these are maintaining and growing the symphony’s excellent artistic product led by our beloved music and artistic director, Nir Kabaretti; nurturing our unique Education Center, which actively involves over 4,000 children continuously throughout the school year; and building a strong Board of Directors and staff to ensure the symphony’s operational excellence and financial sustainability.

The Board of Directors recognizes and highly values the integrity, professionalism and dedication that Grossman brought to the symphony during his tenure. The Santa Barbara Symphony wishes Grossman continued success in all of his future endeavors.

— Arthur Swalley is board president for the Santa Barbara Symphony.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

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.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.
