The Jacksonville Symphony Society is happy to announce that we have hired Hope K. Quarles to be our new Interim Executive Director! We are so excited to see what she will bring to the table, as she has been a part of this symphony for many years!
She is an Illinois College Graduate, class of 2017, obtaining a Bachelor of Art's degree in Music Performance, and she just recently obtained her Master of Art's Degree from Roosevelt University, Chicago College of Performing Arts, in Performing Art's Administration. Hope has held multiple roles at the JSS over the years, starting off as a substitute clarinet player, and moving through the ranks to VP of the Board of Directors, then to Orchestra Personnel Manager. Hope brings a unique perspective to the position, and we are thrilled she has come aboard.
