After three seasons, Jane Kenworthy bids farewell to Annapolis symphony

November 17, 1999|By Phil Greenfield | Phil Greenfield,SPECIAL TO THE SUN

Jane Kenworthy, the energetic, enterprising executive director of the Annapolis Symphony Orchestra for the past three seasons, said last night that she is resigning, effective in early January.

Kenworthy, 54, said she is leaving to accept a position as executive director of the Greater Twin Cities Youth Symphonies, an organization that oversees eight young people's instrumental ensembles in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area.

Kenworthy, who began her career in arts administration by managing the Greater Boston Youth Symphony Orchestra, expressed delight at the prospect of working again with talented young musicians.

Kenworthy's tenure with the ASO has been a period of momentous change for the orchestra, a point she acknowledged in a statement she prepared for The Sun last night. "It has been a very challenging three-plus years," she said. "The ASO has erased a deficit, picked a new music director, and doubled its budget during my tenure. It has been a privilege to have had a hand in the orchestra's growth spurt."
