Trudy Schroeder, the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra's executive director for the past 13 years, will step down at the end of 2021.
The 73-year-old company announced late Monday that it has launched a search committee to hire her replacement.
Schroeder has been in arts management for 35 years, and was the executive director of the Winnipeg Folk Festival for 10 years prior to joining the WSO.
During Schroeder's tenure, the WSO had reported surpluses for 12 consecutive years prior to 2020, when the COVID-19 pandemic forced the swift end to the 2019-20 season.
The 2020-21 season started with some live shows performed before smaller, socially distanced audience, but the orchestra switched to livestreamed concerts when provincial pandemic regulations closed Manitoba's concert halls.
