A Message from Robert!
I hope that you are having a safe and rewarding summer in these most unusual of times. I am reaching out to you to share with you a bit of news that is occurring in my life.
My family and I are moving to Canada! This plan has been in development for the past 12 months. Now that we have the opportunity to get in during a pandemic, we decided to take the leap. This move aligns with our family’s current situation and our future goals. In fact, for the past seven years, I have been travelling monthly between Boise and Windsor!
What does this mean for Boise Baroque Orchestra? Nothing! I will be continuing in my role as Artistic Director and have signed a longer-term contract. I have been working from home on a regular basis for the past six months already, as we all continue to develop our remote management communication skills. Once we return to a normal season, I will continue with my regular schedule of conducting three weeks of concerts per season, plus will carry on with all of my other responsibilities as Artistic Director. I will be continuing with Idaho Orchestra Institute as well. That means I will return to my beloved Boise at least once a quarter. In effect, I will be reverse commuting!
So, for now we bid you adieu, but only until the orchestra and I make music together again. The BBO will be in touch in the next few weeks as our plans for the fall and beyond are formalized. I have a special place in my heart for you, our audience, and for the incredible musicians of the BBO. You aren’t going to get rid of me that easily!
All the best,
