Two vice presidential appointments have been announced by the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra: BETH BUCK, vice president and chief financial officer, and CAROL BOGASH to the newly created post of vice president of education and community engagement. Buck, a certified public accountant, brings to the orchestra more than twenty years of experience in financial reporting, strategic planning, budgeting, investor relations, and tax planning. For the past two years she has served as vice president and chief accounting officer for Kelson Energy (Columbia, Md.), and worked previously as CFO for two other Maryland companies, Ingenium Corporation and RWD Technologies. Buck earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration from Robert Morris College and an executive MBA from Carnegie Mellon University. Bogash, who begins her duties in September 2011, will manage all of the BSO’s education and community engagement projects, including the mid-week education concerts and family programs, and will supervise expansion of the orchestra’s OrchKids and BSO Academy mentorship programs. Currently director of education for the Washington (D.C) Performing Arts Society, and formerly director of educational and cultural programs for the Smithsonian Institution’s Associates Programs, Bogash holds a bachelor’s degree in music from the University of Georgia and a master’s in music from the Peabody Institute of Johns Hopkins University.
