The La Porte County Symphony Orchestra Board announces the appointment of Laura Cutler as the Orchestra’s new Executive Director, effective November 1, 2015. Cutler, a resident of La Porte, holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Otis College of Art and Design in Los Angeles, CA., and Master of Fine Arts Degree from the New York Academy of Art. In 2004, she and her husband Thaddeus, a life- long resident of La Porte, opened a Fine Art Gallery and have been involved in the revitalization of the downtown area since that time. Cutler is also the daughter of a professional tenor and attended orchestra concerts from an early age. “I attended concerts of both the Flint Symphony Orchestra and the Detroit Symphony as they were an important part of my life. When I moved to this area as an adult, I was thrilled to discover that La Porte County had such a cultural gem!”
“We are all very excited about Laura coming on board with the La Porte County Symphony Orchestra. Her talent, passion and love for the community will be an asset for the symphony.”, stated LCSO Board President, Michael Drayton.
