Seattle Baroque Orchestra director stepping down

Violinist Ingrid Matthews, the talented and very busy music director of Seattle Baroque Orchestra, has announced that the 2012-13 season will be her last in that position. “The ensemble’s incredibly rich and rewarding projects have been my passion and life’s work for 19 years, and the Orchestra is stronger than ever,” she said in a news release. “The time is right for me to pass leadership on to other hands.” Her replacement will be named in the fall. (Matthews, who is a painter as well, plays a 1703 Hendrik Jacobs violin; she talks about it here.)
