“The ideal board member will be an engaged member of the Boston community, who has demonstrated volunteer commitment to a not-for-profit organization (especially in the arts). Nominees for the board should be able to devote adequate time to Boston Civic Symphony activities, including concerts, fundraisers, and other work, and be willing to make board service a priority. They should possess good judgment, listening and speaking skills, follow through on work they undertake, be able to work collaboratively, and be willing to serve as an ambassador for Boston Civic Symphony in the wider community.” About the Boston Civic Symphony: http://bostoncivicsymphony.org/ Founded in 1924 by the late educator, conductor, and composer Joseph Wagner, the Boston Civic Symphony is the second oldest symphony orchestra in the city. As one of Boston’s most respected musical organizations, the Civic has distinguished itself from other local musical groups through its focus on engaging exceptionally skilled student and amateur performers, and through its emphasis on developing a broad-based audience. The Civic’s presentation of works by masters like Mozart, Beethoven and Brahms is balanced by its performances of pieces by contemporary American composers. Concerts are held at New England Conservatory’s Jordan Hall and the Fine Arts Center at Regis College in Weston, MA. For thirty-eight years, Max Hobart, former assistant concertmaster of the BSO, led the orchestra – one of the longest tenures for any symphony orchestra conductor in history. After a two-year, worldwide search, Francisco Noya became the new music director in 2017.
