Taylor from Santa Rosa Symphony joins the Luther Burbank Center for the Arts


Santa Rosa Symphony Development Director Ben Taylor has accepted a position at the Luther Burbank Center for the Arts.

Taylor, whose last day will be Oct. 27, was responsible for working with symphony partners, such as The Press Democrat, to make the symphony’s artistic and educational programs possible.

He accepted the position of Director of Development for the Luther Burbank Center for the Arts in Santa Rosa.

In the meantime, until Taylor’s replacement is hired into the Symphony Orchestra, all projects and plans previously handled by Taylor will be handled by Alan Silow, President and CEO of the Symphony Orchestra, have officials said.

Taylor returned to his current position with the Symphony Orchestra in 2016, where he previously worked in the Symphony Orchestra’s Education Department for 12 years, finally as Director of Education.

With over 15 years of experience in the non-profit sector, Taylor’s primary focus is on program design and community relationship building. He was also musical director of the Albany Community Chorus and the Unitarian-Universalist Congregation of Santa Rosa.

Also a composer, Taylor’s works have been performed in North America and China by ensembles such as the Cleveland Chamber Symphony, the Contra Costa Chamber Orchestra, the Festival Choir of Madison, Wisconsin, and the Santa Rosa Symphony Youth Orchestra, according to the symphony. He has also sung tenor in Philharmonia Baroque, Berkeley Symphony, Sonoma Bach and the Folger Consort.
