Phoenix Symphony has new President, CEO
Founded in 1947, The Phoenix Symphony has grown to become one of the state’s largest performing arts organizations. In addition to performing a traditional and modern repertoire in the fall and spring in Symphony Hall and around the Valley, its musicians are actively engaged in the community including time spent with students and those in nursing homes.
Peter Kjome took the helm of The Phoenix Symphony on Feb 1, 2023. Most recently, Kjome served as the President and CEO of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, one of the nation’s leading orchestras. He has also held the top post at the Grand Rapids Symphony and was a professional oboist earlier in his career.
He joined Arizona Horizon to talk more about his plans for The Phoenix Symphony.
