BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Just days after the musicians and management of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra reached an agreement ending a weeks-long lockout, the orchestra’s board chair is being replaced.

During their annual meeting Wednesday, the BSO re-elected ten of its directors but not its incumbent chairperson Barbara Bozzuto.

While she will no longer serve as the group’s chair, Bozzuto will still help lead the organization’s fundraising efforts, the BSO said in a news release.

Bozzuto had served two terms as chairperson, while Rosen previously served as vice-chair.

The group also approved the creation of a Vision Committee to shape the orchestra’s future, with input from the musicians. That committee was one of several items the musicians called for during contract negotiations.
