Spokane Symphony extends contracts for music director, conductor

Posted By on Wed, Jan 25, 2012 at 5:30 PM

At a press conference this afternoon on the stage of the Fox Theater, the Spokane Symphony announced that both music director Eckart Preu and resident conductor Morihiko Nakahara have extended their contracts.

Nakahara, a former Eastern Washington University professor who has been with the symphony since 2003, signed a contract that will keep him onstage in Spokane through the 2013-2014 season.

Preu is now set to remain music director through the 2015-2016 season.

"It has been a truly satisfying experience, and I'm very happy to be part of the future, and shape the future, of the symphony here in Spokane," said Eckart, who became music director in 2004 and also holds the same position with the Stanford, Conn., symphony.

You can see Nakahara in action this weekend as the symphony presents "Heroes and Legends" both Saturday evening and Sunday afternoon. Here's the ticket info.
