Dallas Symphony Orchestra Names Bill Lively President and CEO Effective June 1, 2011

Dallas, TX – January 12, 2011 – The Dallas Symphony Orchestra announced today that Dallas’ premier fundraiser and community leader Bill Lively has accepted the position of President and CEO of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra. Following the completion of the Super Bowl, Lively will begin transitioning from his current position as President and CEO of the North Texas Super Bowl XLV Host Committee. He will be working on a part time basis for the DSO beginning April 1, 2011, until his official start date of June 1, 2011.
“The Dallas Symphony Orchestra is one of our city’s greatest cultural organizations,” said Lively. “I am joining the DSO at an incredible time in its artistic history. I look forward to the challenges as well as the great rewards of taking the DSO to the very highest level, impacting our community here in Dallas, while changing the definition of what the city of Dallas is known for in the future. I am committed to the larger vision of the orchestra, including a planned March 2013 European Tour, an October 2013 East Coast Tour, and plans which are formulating for a major festival in Dallas in 2014. I know that this new role will be one of the greatest joys of my career.”

… and a whole lot more, but I won’t post it all here.

So that was the “major announcement impacting the future of the Dallas Symphony and the City of Dallas” in case you were wondering.
