Maestro Vajda has been named as the new artistic and music director of Music In The Mountains.

I really enjoyed working with Gregory Vajda; I look forward to seeing him again with Symphony Silicon Valley in our 2009-2010 season.

This second article includes this:

By all accounts, MIM musicians, some of whom have performed under Vajda at Symphony Silicon Valley, are keen on him.

“We are extremely excited about this,” said MIM concertmaster Robin Mayforth, who was also on the search committee.

“He has this infectious energy and enthusiasm that translates into us being able to play on this incredible level.”

But it wasn’t just Vajda’s charisma that won over Mayforth and other members of the orchestra.

“From the moment he steps up to the podium, there is a clarity in his stick technique,” she said. “And there is this incredible trust that he places in us, and we feel we can trust him as well. That puts everyone at ease.”

(Robin Mayforth is also concertmaster of Symphony Silicon Valley.)
