Chicago Symphony Orchestra names new president

The Chicago Symphony Orchestra Association has picked a new president. Jeff Alexander will start in mid-January. He’s currently president and CEO of the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra. He’s credited with helping start new programs like a community music school, increasing revenue and ticket sales and re-establishing the orchestra’s domestic and international touring programs. The CSO Association's former president, Deborah F. Rutter, left to lead the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C. Jeff Alexander joins us to talk about his new job, and what might be in store for the CSO.
