The North State Symphony announced their new music director during Wednesday's board of directors meeting.
Award-winning conductor Scott Seaton has been named as the new music director. Seaton was one of four finalists for the position who were guest conductors during the 2014-2015 North State Symphony season.
"I'm delighted that our thorough, year-long search process has identified our new music director, Scott Seaton, who appears to be such a wonderful fit for us," said Gene Nichols, chair of the North State Symphony Board of Directors.
Seaton replaces Kyle Wiley Pickett, who completed a 14-year tenure as music director with a final performance in May 2014.
Created in 2001 from the merger of the Chico and Redding Symphonies, the North State Symphony functions as a program within the College of Humanities and Fine Arts at California State University, Chico.
