The Kansas City Symphony has a new music director.
Matthias Pintscher was offered the job just five days after conducting the orchestra for the first time.
The 52 year old, who signed a five year contract, had not led the orchestra until arriving for rehearsals two days ahead of concerts in March.
Pintscher, who is also a composer, is committing 10 weeks per season to the orchestra, of which eight likely will be leading concerts.
He replaces Michael Stern, who ends a 19-year tenure.
