Craviso apparently the new CEO for the RPO 

It appears that the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra's interim president and chief executive officer, Ralph Craviso, has stepped into the position permanently. There has not yet been an official announcement from the RPO, but in a letter to donors dated June 23, Craviso wrote, "As the next leader of this great organization, I promise to uphold the mission and values that have made your RPO withstand the test of time."

Noticeably missing from the letter was the word "interim," which has been used in previous RPO material referring to Craviso.

Craviso became interim president and CEO on October 1, 2015, following the resignation of Charles Owens. Craviso is a specialist in working with non-profits across the US with a focus on human resources and runs a management consulting firm, Craviso & Associates. He has worked with more than 60 symphony orchestras across the country, and is also the director of a master's program in performing arts administration at Roosevelt University's Chicago College of Performing Arts.

Craviso's name is also familiar to the RPO community because of the study he led of the RPO's problems in 2012, and for the "intervention" efforts he headed between then Music Director Arild Remmereit and Owens. That work led to Remmereit leaving the orchestra.

    Summer starts June 21, so with beautiful weather inevitable during the next few months, there's no reason to stay home. We say it every year, but it's always true: Western New York comes alive during the summer months.
