Just in: Esa-Pekka partner quits San Fran Symph

San Francisco Symphony’s Chief Artistic Officer, Phillippa Cole, is joining the Opus 3 agency as Senior Vice President.

Previously at the LA Phil, she formed a close partnership with Esa-Pekka Salonen in San Francisco. She ‘will return on a part-time contract basis in the fall to provide artistic planning support for all of Esa-Pekka’s programs through the end of the 24-25 season,’ says an orchestra statment.

CEO Matthew Spivey adds: ‘Her partnership with Esa-Pekka and so many other remarkable artists has elevated our artistic impact and made San Francisco a destination for creative minds everywhere. Her commitment and enthusiasm are infectious and her relationships among artists, orchestra and chorus musicians, staff, board, and community partners have strengthened our organization in countless ways.’
