In the May 24 issue of The New Yorker (out May 17), Alex Ross profiles
the South Dakota Symphony Orchestra (which just concluded its
centennial season) and hails Delta David Gier's breakthrough
programming. David, Executive Director Jennifer Teisinger, and Board
Chair Scott Lawrence share an institutional embrace of the
Orchestra's artistic values. It has been our great honor working with
Jennifer, David and the team building audiences for the SDSO. Sales
for the just completed 2021-22 centennial season surpassed those of
pre-pandemic 2018-19. As I learned from marketing the four years of
Spring For Music orchestras at Carnegie Hall (2011-2014), creativity is
not driven by market size or budget. It sparks locally, reflects globally.
Congratulations Jennifer and David. Well earned!
