No Ordinary Time: A Dynamic and Transitional Time at the San Diego Symphony

Martha Gilmer

The San Diego Symphony Orchestra is searching for a new Music Director to succeed Maestro Jahja Ling. Some 20 potential international candidates will be evaluated for the position over an estimated three-year period. At the same time, the Symphony is focused on creating a public park at the Embarcadero Marina Park South that will feature a state-of-the-art performance facility and outdoor classrooms as a gift to the San Diego region. This lecture will discuss these projects and much more news about our Orchestra.

Instructor: Martha Gilmer has been CEO of the San Diego Symphony since September 2014. She brought to San Diego her experience of over 35 years with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, where she oversaw artistic planning, the development of dynamic programs to engage diverse audiences, and an education program designed to reach students of all ages. She holds a Bachelor of Music degree from Northwestern University and is a recipient of the Northwestern Alumni award.
