The National Symphony Orchestra and the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington announced today that Christoph Eschenbach (74) will not extend his position as Music Director after the conclusion of the 2016-2017 season. He will then have completed seven seasons as Music Director and an additional season as Music Director Designate. With the 2017-2018 season he will become Conductor Laureate of the National Symphony for a three-year term. The Orchestra’s board will form a search committee to begin the process of finding the next Music Director of the National Symphony Orchestra.

Eschenbach will loose a revenue of $1,935,013 (last known figure, from 2012).
