The Face of the Future
The New York Philharmonic has named its next Executive Director: Matthew VanBesien.
The Missouri native — and one-time professional French horn player — comes to New York after serving as managing director of Australia’s Melbourne Symphony Orchestra for two years, which followed seven years at the Houston Symphony, first as general manager and then as executive director and CEO. He will begin working with Zarin Mehta this spring, beginning a transition period that will run through the rest of this season.
For now, join us in welcoming Matthew VanBesien to the New York Philharmonic.
