The Heartland Symphony Orchestra’s Board of Directors has regretfully accepted the resignation of their gifted conductor, Dr. Alexander Corbett. Dr. Corbett who has energetically and enthusiastically led the Heartland Symphony Orchestra for the past three seasons has accepted a position of Assistant Professor of Music at Temple College in Texas.

Heartland Symphony Orchestra, a 55-piece orchestra serving central Minnesota, celebrates its 43rd anniversary next concert season and over the years, being the conductor of this orchestra has become a coveted position for talented, young conductors. So far, the conductor’s search committee has received over fifteen applicants. The selected candidate will be announced shortly.

We hope we have played a small part in Dr. Corbett’s bright future. While we regret his departure, we are very happy for him and wish him the very best in his future endeavors.
