The Reading Symphony Orchestra’s Board of Directors announced Tuesday that the organization’s Executive Director David Gross will be stepping down from his role to take an executive director position with an orchestra closer to his family.
David’s last day with the RSO will be in late June. The RSO’s Board of Directors greatly appreciates David’s contributions during his tenure, and they wish him nothing but the best in his next adventure.
The board’s First and Second Vice Presidents, Amy Kreider and Kevin DeAcosta, will be leading the search to identify the next Executive Director.
“David’s passion for music and for our community has been inspirational over his more than five-year tenure as the RSO’s Executive Director,” said Reading Symphony Orchestra Board Chair Michael Duff. “It is bittersweet for us to see him leave, but we appreciate his desire to take a new role closer to his family.”
“Working with David Gross has been one of the highlights of my professional life,” said Reading Symphony Orchestra Music Director Andrew Constantine. “He’s been a huge asset to the Reading Symphony Orchestra and will be greatly missed. That said, I wish both David and Debbie much joy and success in their next adventure.”
“It has been an honor to work with so many amazing musicians, staff members, the engaged members of our board, and Music Director Andrew Constantine over the last several years,” said Gross. “Thanks in large part to the support of the Reading Symphony Orchestra’s patrons and donors, this esteemed orchestra has a very bright future, and I look forward to following its work for years to come.”
