Symphonicity Proudly Announces New Music Director is Daniel W. Boothe
As the culmination of season-long “Quest for the Best,” Daniel W. Boothe, an award-winning musician and composer, will take the baton to lead Symphonicity, starting with the 2017-2018 season. After Symphonicity’s first and founding music director David Kunkel announced his plans to retire, the orchestra began a “Quest for the Best” search for a new music director. They received 74 applicants from four continents. Over the course of two full years, five finalists were selected (based on education, experience, references, conducting videos and multiple interviews) and each conducted one of Symphonicity’s masterworks concerts this past season. Audience members were invited to give feedback after each concert, and early-bird subscription ticket-holders were also invited to rank the finalists after the last concert. As one of the five finalists, Boothe conducted the first concert of the 2016-2017 season on October 16th, presenting Kenneth Fuchs’s United Artists, Korngold’s Violin Concerto with acclaimed virtuoso violinist Janet Sung, and Dvorák’s iconic Symphony No. 9. Grammy-nominated composer Kenneth Fuchs attended this exceptional opening season concert.
