Enriching, Educating, and Transforming Lives Through Classical Music

Alasdair Neale, Music Director of the Marin Symphony since 2001, is announcing that after two more concert seasons, he will end his tenure with the Symphony upon the conclusion of the 2022-2023 season.

After leaving Europe 40 years ago to emigrate to the United States, Neale plans to return there for the next chapter in his life and, along with his husband, will relocate to Paris to be closer to the UK side of his family and to experience new adventures in the City of Lights.

Maestro Neale shared, “The last two decades leading the Marin Symphony have been filled with joyous musical experiences, wonderful friendships and treasured memories on and off the podium.  I’m so grateful for the enduring passion and commitment of the orchestra, the warmth of our audiences, and the generous support of our patrons.”
