Conductor Raffaele Ponti, who has been the musical director of the Genessee Symphony Orchestra for 15 years, announced yesterday prior to the start of the season-opening concert, that this will be his final season with the GSO.
Ponti recently relocated from Rochester to Florida as his career continues to advance.
The GSO board will announce soon plans for hiring a new conductor, its 14th in its 67-year history.
