TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) – The Terre Haute Symphony Orchestra introduced its new executive director on Wednesday.
Samantha Johnson-Helms was selected for the role and discussed some of her goals for the symphony orchestra.
She says she wants to get the community engaged in the organization, expand their education outreach and, in this time of COVID-19, explore new virtual opportunities.
“I’m going to look into researching how we could possibly livestream some of our events, create new content and hopefully make people feel a little more comfortable about getting their live music virtually instead of in-person, but there’s nothing that beats live music,” says Johnson-Helms.
The Terre Haute Symphony Orchestra is in its 94th season and is the oldest professional orchestra in the state of Indiana.
