Eckart Preu

Eckart Preu will leave the Spokane Symphony at the end of the 2018-19 season to dedicate more time to his new role as music director of the Long Beach Symphony Orchestra in California and the Cincinnati Chamber Orchestra.

“I love this orchestra, and I love this community,” Preu said in a press release. “At this point in my career, there are more opportunities knocking. My new positions in Long Beach and Cincinnati are taking more of my attention, as is my family. I love Spokane, and look forward to planning an extraordinary finish through the end of next season.”

Preu has been the orchestra’s music director since 2004.

In a press release, Lorrie Scott, president of the Spokane Symphony Board of Trustees, said the board plans to launch an international search for a new music director in the fall, with the goal of having the position filled by May 2019.
