— David Chambless Worters, president and CEO of the North Carolina Symphony, is leaving to take a similar job with the Van Cliburn Foundation based in Fort Worth, Texas, the symphony announced Thursday.

Worters's resignation is effective Nov. 15. He has been with the N.C. Symphony since 1999.

Worters was recruited to the Cliburn after an international search and succeeds Richard Rodzinski, who retired in September 2009.
