After 16 years of inspiring audiences and leading the Cape Symphony to new heights, Artistic Director
and Conductor Jung-Ho Pak has announced that he will be stepping down from his position at the end of
the summer.

Under Pak’s leadership, the Cape Symphony has become one of the most respected orchestras in the
region, presenting an innovative and engaging repertoire that has earned praise from audiences and
critics alike. He has also been instrumental in building the orchestra’s education programs, introducing
thousands of young people to the joys of classical music.

“It has been a great honor to serve as Artistic Director and Conductor of the Cape Symphony” said Pak.
“I am incredibly proud of what we have accomplished together, and I am confident that the orchestra
will continue to thrive under new leadership.”

The Board of Trustees of the Cape Symphony has already begun the search for a new Artistic Director
and Conductor to replace Pak. “We are deeply grateful to Jung-Ho Pak for his outstanding leadership of the Cape Symphony over the past 16 years” said Board Chair Anthony Panebianco. “He has been an inspiration to all of us, and we wish him all the best. At the same time, we are excited to begin the search for a new conductor who will lead the Cape Symphony into the future.”

The Cape Symphony will present an exciting and diverse program of concerts, conducted by Pak,
throughout the summer, honoring his contributions to the orchestra. The Board of Trustees expects to
engage a series of talented guest conductors throughout the 2023/24 season and announce a new
conductor in spring 2024.
