Board of Directors

The Board of Directors is the governing body of the Metropolitan Symphony Orchestral Association, which is the not-for-profit corporation that operates the MSO. The MSOA, through the Board, hires the Music Director and Executive Director; sets the budget and manages contributions and bank accounts; files tax returns; contracts with venues and artists; and pays the expenses of the Orchestra. Jon Lewis, Executive Director, executes many of these activities on behalf of the Board.
