Mikko Leppänen has resigned from his position as Managing Director of the Kymi Sinfonietta. He will remain in charge of the orchestra’s finances until March 17, and the orchestra’s office staff will continue to handle the practical affairs and concerts together with the Orchestra Board. Certain essential operative matters will be temporarily entrusted to the Orchestra Manager, Heidi Mustikkaniemi, until a new Managing Director begins in office.
“My decision is a personal one,” says Mr Leppänen, “and I don’t wish to comment. During the just under 18 months I have spent with the orchestra, a lot of good things have been achieved, for which I’m happy and grateful to the whole working community. The Kymi Sinfonietta is a first-class, versatile and innovative orchestra that has a lot to give both locally and internationally.”
The Orchestra Board will be initiating the application process for a new Managing Director and issuing further details of this in the near future.
