Duluth Superior Symphony Board President Bill Gravelle announced last week that the board has extended DSSO Executive Director Andrew Berryhill's contract for three years.

Said Gravelle, "Mr. Berryhill's innovative and professional approach to addressing the issues of the DSSO are a significant factor in the current success of the organization. Since hiring Berryhill as executive director two years ago, we've experienced a major turnaround. Not only did we finish the last two seasons in the black, but we've strengthened community support for the orchestra."

"I'm excited to be able to continue my professional relationship with the DSSO board, music director Markand Thakar, the musicians and the Twin Ports community," Berryhill said. "We've done a lot of positive work in the past two seasons, and we look forward to continuing to provide a truly great product that enhances the quality of life in our region. Finishing in the black for the last two years is great -- but it is the growth in and fabulous quality of the orchestra's playing that I'm most proud of."

Berryhill was named executive director of the DSSO in May 2002. Formerly the assistant director of programming for the Chicago Symphony, Berryhill currently serves on the boards of the Arrowhead Regional Arts Council and the Twin Ports Area Non-Profit Coalition, and is active in the American Symphony Orchestra League.
