The Prince George Symphony Orchestra has appointed a new executive director.

Ken Hall will take the helm at the symphony on May 1, replacing outgoing general manager Teresa Saunders. 

"This is an important milestone in the life of the PGSO," symphony board chairperson Roy Stewart said in a press release. 

Hall is a professional musician and has 20 years experience in arts administration. For the last 16 years he was worked with the Canadian Children's Opera Company in Toronto, rising to the position of managing director.

Hall, who was raised in Calgary, is looking forward to moving back to Western Canada to take on the position with the PGSO, a statement released by the symphony said.

Saunders departs from the role after five years, having overseen the 50th anniversary celebrations of the symphony.

“One of the highlights of my work has been the partnership with our maestro, Michael Hall (no relation to Ken Hall) over the past four years," Saunders said. "Our maestro is an extremely gifted and collaborative music director and It has been a pleasure working with him to advance his exciting musical vision for the PGSO. I am confident that 'Hall and Hall' will be an excellent senior management team and continue to provide strong leadership to the organization.”
