Vajda takes the helm at Music in the Mountains
Gregory Vajda has been named the new artistic director and conductor of Music in the Mountains, which is a classical music organizaiton that serves Grass Valley and Nevada City, California (both are located north of Sacramento). Music in the Mountains offers concerts throughout the year, but each series is short. So, this will not be a full-time gig for Vajda. He is still the resident conductor of the Oregon Symphony, but he is on the short list for the music director position at the San Antonio Symphony.
Here is The Music in the Mountains announcement and an article in The Union newspaper.
