The Ides of March proved to be fateful for the Los Angeles Philharmonic this year when Deborah Borda, who has served as the Phil’s President and Chief Executive Officer for 17 years, announced that she is leaving that post to become President and CEO of the New York Philharmonic beginning Sept. 15.

It’s a homecoming for the 67-year-old Borda, who served as NYPO Executive Director for eight years before coming to Los Angeles. She replaces Matthew VanBesien, who resigned in January. Borda has also served in executive capacities with the San Francisco Symphony, Detroit Symphony and the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra.
