Spokane Symphony extends contract with Eckart Preu

The Spokane Symphony Board of Trustees have announced that Music Director and Conductor Eckart Preu has signed a one-year contract extension through the end of the 2018-19 Symphony season, which will be Preu's farewell season with the orchestra after 15 years.

"Spokane is very fortunate to have benefitted from Eckart's charismatic leadership," said Lorrie Scott, president of the Spokane Symphony Board of Trustees. "His talent, energy and innovation have made an impact in our community and elevated the orchestra's level of musical excellence, ultimately positioning the Spokane Symphony for long-term success."

Maestro Preu, 48, who has been the Spokane Symphony's Music Director since 2004, is the eighth music director since the organization was founded in 1945. Preu will continue in his role through the end of the 2018-19 season, and plans to spend more time in similar conducting positions in other U.S. cities, as well as guest conducting abroad. In 2016, Preu also became the music director of the Long Beach Symphony Orchestra in California, as well as the Cincinnati Chamber Orchestra.

Under Preu's direction, the Symphony received a first place award from the American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers (ASCAP) for 'Adventurous Programming' during the 2013-14 season. He also helped to spearhead numerous community collaborations to engage new audiences, such as 'Uncharted' with Terrain, and 'Music Heals,' an ongoing inter-cultural partnership between the Symphony and the Spokane Tribe.
