Oregon Symphony welcomes new board members

At its recent annual membership meeting, the Oregon Symphony Board of Directors elected 13 new members, each to a three-year term.

“Growing our board has demonstrable impact on our organization and the community of Oregon and Southwest Washington,” President Scott Showalter said. “These leaders invest significant time and money to grow the reach and impact of our artistic and community programs.”

The new members, who bring the total board of directors’ membership to 38, assume shared responsibility to oversee the largest musical organization in the state. With an annual budget of $16 million, the symphony attracts more than 150,000 patrons to more than 75 performances of classical, pops, kids and special concerts each season.

The new members include Lake Oswego residents Steve Bass of OPB and Jack WIlborn, retired from KPMG.

The Oregon Symphony, which has finished with season-end surpluses for the past five years, is midway through its 2014-15 season. To date, ticket revenue and contributed income are running ahead of last year’s results.
