Newburgh Symphony Names Russell Ger Music Director After Two-Year Search

Russell Ger has been selected as the new Music Director of the GNSO after an extensive two-year search led by a musician search committee headed by Orchestra Manager Greg Phillips.  The final decision by the Board of Directors included input from the search committee, musician and audience ratings, and results of 90-minute interviews of each candidate by a Board committee.

Board president John Bliss said that “We owe a tremendous debt of thanks to the four Maestros — Mr. Ger, Harvey Felder, David Bernard and Michael Avagliano — for leading one of the most exciting seasons in the history of the GNSO.  Their professionalism was evident in their rapport with both the musicians and the audiences, and the result was performances that stirred the heart and soul.
