The St. Paul Chamber Orchestra announced that Artistic Director Kyu-Young Kim is stepping down at the end of this season, but will continue as principal violin.

« Due to recent organizational decisions and shifts in priorities, I am no longer able to fulfill my dual role as artistic director and principal violin of the SPCO, » Kim said in a statement. « I want to thank my colleagues, patrons of the SPCO, and our beloved audience for the opportunity to contribute to the artistic evolution of the SPCO in truly significant ways over the past 11 years. »

« In the meantime, » the organization said, « the SPCO will work across the organization to determine the next steps for artistic leadership while remaining committed to the SPCO’s distinctive musician-led artistic model. »
