Kalamazoo Symphony Orchestra
Raymond Harvey

Raymond Harvey has become a familiar face in Kalamazoo. He’s been conducting the state’s third largest professional orchestra for 18 years.

For the past two years, Harvey has taught music at an opera center at the University of Houston. In a letter to the orchestra board this week, Harvey said teaching has always been his calling.

A search committee is being formed to find a replacement, according to a press release, and will be by invitation only.
