Ledbetter joined the board in 2017, serving on both the board and the executive committee. He looks forward to the upcoming season titled “Your Symphony. Your Story.” The BSO is elevating its marketing for the coming year and is in the works of a brand-new, high-quality publication.

The symphony’s new season kicks off with a free outdoor community concert Sunday, Sept. 1 at 7 p.m. in Dogwood Park featuring light classics and patriotic favorites.
