When Steven Larsen retired from the Rockford Symphony in Illinois in 2021, the orchestra quickly whittled down 207 deadline applications to a shortlist of nine (one of whom, Andrew Crust, got namechecked in the Cate Blanchett film, Tar).

The winner was announced last night.

He is the Israeli conductor Yaniv Attar, who is already employed as music director of the Bellingham Symphony and the Pennsylvania Chamber Orchestra and is Artistic Partner with Northwest Sinfonietta.
