SCP’s Hunsinger appointed to national orchestras board

The League of American Orchestras today appointed South Carolina Philharmonic Executive Director Rhonda Hunsinger to its board of directors for a two-year term.

Hunsinger was also appointed chair of the LAO’s Advisory Group Six, representing one of four ex officio executive director positions on the LAO board, and to the League’s Advisory Committee, which provides counsel, feedback, and information to inform and shape the formation and execution of current and emerging League programs.  
Locally, she chairs the Cultural Affairs Committee of the Rotary Club of Columbia and serves on the board of directors of One Columbia for Arts and Historic Preservation, born out of Mayor Benjamin's 2010 transition team for arts and historic preservation.

Her tenure at the SCP began in 1998, and she became executive director in spring 2002.

“The LAO provides orchestras the invaluable opportunity to learn from top experts in the field, as well as from other orchestra professionals throughout the U.S. Many of the SCP’s successes are a direct result of the LAO’s guidance and support. I’m honored to have the opportunity to help guide this work at the national level,” said Hunsinger.

SCP Board of Directors President Bill Danielson praised Hunsinger on behalf of the board:

“The South Carolina Philharmonic Board of Directors is extremely pleased and honored by Rhonda’s appointment to serve on the League of American Orchestras board. This reflects the Philharmonic's dedication to excellence within our board of directors, executive management, staff and, most importantly, our conductor and musicians. It is gratifying that the League knows what we already knew: our executive director is a highly respected and knowledgeable professional within the national orchestra community."
