The PSO Board of Directors regrets to announce that Sarah Lazure, the PSO’s General Manager during the current season and our Artistic Producer since August 2015, will be leaving us after our forthcoming concert on April 6. She will be taking up a new position with a large local employer. It is an excellent career move for her. The Board of Directors would like to thank Sarah for her dedicated service, her passion for the PSO and her enthusiasm in her role. We will miss her very much. Michael Newnham speaks for all of us: “Since joining us, Sarah has been on the ground floor of the PSO’s artistic and logistical planning. Her energy and commitment to excellence in everything she does has been a very large reason for the success that the orchestra has been experiencing in audience growth and expanding its profile in our community” We wish her every success in her new position.
A search process for a new General Manager is underway. Until a new General Manager is installed, the board of the PSO will continue to guide the organization with the assistance of our Music Director, Michael Newnham. We look forward to continuing to bring quality orchestral music, music education and outreach to the Peterborough area.
