Since joining on April 1, Ron has been working closely with Jon Lewis, MSO’s long-time leader, to ensure a smooth transition. Jon is retiring after a distinguished career as the MSO Executive Director, and will continue playing as Principal Percussionist after taking a well-deserved break.  READ MORE about MSO’s New Executive Director, Ron Lattin.
