About the Search

The committee includes KSO Board members, 10 KSO orchestra musicians, representatives from the Knoxville Symphony League and staff along with community members. There were approximately 160 applicants for the KSO Music Director position. The search committee narrowed the applicants to 30 and reviewed each candidate thoroughly, including watching submitted videos of the candidates in action.
