LCCMF Executive Director Martha Ming Whitfield Steps Down

Posted By on Mon, Apr 15, 2013 at 10:30 AM


An announcement came today from the Lake Champlain Chamber Music Festival folks that executive director Martha Ming Whitfield is moving on. After less than four years at the helm, Whitfield is ready "to pursue new opportunities."

Those years have been productive ones for the classical-music organization whose artistic director is Soovin Kim (pictured). The announcement cited "numerous recent successes," including a fundraising campaign to commission a major work from composer-in-residence David Ludwig, the concert from renowned Jasper String Quartet last week, and the launch of ONE Strings — a violin-instruction program at Burlington's Integrated Arts Academy that Amy Lilly writes about for Seven Days this week. (Look for it in the paper and online on Wednesday.)

As these things go, LCCMF's announcement put a positive spin on the news:

This transition presents the Festival with a wonderful opportunity to take stock of where we are now and where we are going. We are examining how we can best enhance our Festival and build our community, while continuing to present the finest quality programming.

A job search for Whitfield's successor is already posted on LCCMF's website. Stay tuned.
