Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra has named Scott Harrison as its new Executive Director. Harrison, who will begin on October 6, succeeds Rachel Fine, who left LACO earlier this year.

Harrison, 35, comes to Los Angeles from Detroit where he served as Vice President for Advancement and External Relations for the Detroit Symphony, which underwent a bitter labor strike in 2011. At LACO, Harrison will have a hand in the search for replacing Jeffrey Kahane as the orchestra’s Music Director; Kahane will step down at the end of the 2016-2017 season.
