Bremerton Symphony Association Elects New President, Board Members

This from our friends at the Bremerton Symphony Association (received July 1):

At its monthly meeting on Tuesday, June 16, the Bremerton Symphony Association elected a slate of officers who will serve for the 2009-2010 term, beginning July 1. The new Executive Committee will be headed by President Bob Cathcart, who served as 1st Vice President for the 2008-2009 term; Joan Soriano will move to 1st Vice President, and Andrea Spencer will step into the 2nd Vice President position. Steve Politakis will continue as Treasurer, and Dr. Tom Cameron will take on the job of Secretary. The two other Executive Committee members will be Symphony League President Elizabeth Drury and BSA Board Past President Holly James.

Three new board members were elected at the May meeting to serve terms of three-years: Ruth Bernstein, Wendy Clark-Getzin and Earl Rice. The Bremerton Symphony Orchestra (BSO) will be represented on the board by Dr. William Ferman, who has completed his elected term but will return to serve in this capacity; the alternate BSO rep will be Kay Daling. Joyce Brown continues as board representative for the Concert Chorale. Other returning members are Jacquelyn Aufderheide, Lorrie Cook, Wayne Ellis, Alan Halfhill, Connie Lord, Dr. Ron Morse, Joan Taie and Todd Tidball.

Ex-officio Board members include Music Director Alan Futterman, Chorale Director LeeAnne Campos, Youth Orchestra Director Michael Woods and BSA Executive Director Gena Wales.

The Bremerton Symphony Association’s fall season begins October 24 with a program chosen entirely by the orchestra musicians. Featured is local pianist Irene Bowling, playing the Schumann Piano Concerto. Flanking her performance will be the overture to Mozart’s “Magic Flute” and Dvorak’s Ninth, “New World Symphony.” Tickets for this performance—as well as Season Tickets to the complete set of six concerts—are available at the Bremerton Symphony Association Office, (360) 373-1722.

While the board continues regular monthly meetings throughout the summer, the BSA office has adopted reduced hours through the month of August: Tuesday through Thursday, 9 a.m.-4 p.m.
