“The Calgary Philharmonic has found its new CEO and president, announcing that the post will be filled by former National Arts Centre Orchestra General Manager Marc Stevens,” writes Eric Volmers in last Tuesday’s (7/20) Calgary Herald (Canada). “Stevens, who will join the Philharmonic in early September, takes over from Paul Dornian, who will retire in August after six years as president and CEO. Stevens spent seven years with the National Arts Centre in Ottawa, where he led tours across Canada and throughout Europe. During that time, the orchestra received five Juno nominations and was commissioned to play Carnegie Hall with Philip Glass. Stevens came to Canada producing concerts and recordings with the London Symphony Orchestra, including performances at the 2012 Olympic Ceremonies and movie scores for Star Wars and Harry Potter films. He became a Canadian citizen in 2019. The Philharmonic will announce its Fall 2021 lineup on Aug. 3, which will be a mix of in-person and virtual performances.”
