“Tod Brody, an arts administrator and professional flutist who has performed over the years with the Marin Symphony, has been named the orchestra’s new executive director,” writes Paul Liberatore in Tuesday’s (6/14) Marin Independent Journal (California). “It was announced Tuesday that the 62-year-old Brody will take over the helm of the symphony on Aug. 1. He replaces Jeff vom Saal, who was recently hired as executive director of the Spokane Symphony after a four-year tenure in Marin.” Brody “comes to Marin after three years as executive director of San Francisco’s Opera Parallele… Like other Bay Area classical musicians, Brody has performed with many regional orchestras and groups and most recently played with the Marin Symphony in a Waterfront Pops concert. ‘I’ve been part of the Marin Symphony community in a multitude of ways, for many years, and to have the opportunity to participate in leading the organization onward and upward is a really natural next step for me,’ he said. Brody, who also lectures on music at the University of California at Davis, lives in Petaluma with his wife, Susan Walker, and their 10-year-old son, Gabriel.”
