Posted January 12, 2004

— The

North Carolina Symphony

has a new director.

Grant Llewellyn will take the baton from the retired Gerhardt Zimmerman. He said he is ready to get to work.

"I sense North Carolina is a happening place. The economy is on the upturn. All the ingredients seem to be pointing in the direction of a new age for this orchestra in which we have to be ambitious," Llewellyn said.

The symphony will perform under Llewellyn's direction for the first time in September.
