Palm Beach Symphony Announces New Board Chair

June 21, 2021

Peter M. Gottsegen was elected as chair for two three-year terms. Gottsegen was a General Partner of Salomon Brothers from 1978 until he left in 1987 to cofound CAI Private Equity and serve as its managing partner until his retirement in 2014. An avid supporter of the arts, he currently serves as vice chair of the Chamber Music Society of Palm Beach and previously served as chairman of the acclaimed Caramoor Center for Music and the Arts and as director of the Toronto Symphony and the Orchestra of St. Luke’s in New York City. He is vice chairman of the Milbank Memorial Fund, a foundation focused on population health, and a member of the Council on Foreign Relations. He is a graduate of Georgetown University and received an MBA from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania.

“Music Director Gerard Schwarz is a long-time friend, and CEO David McClymont and his team have done an amazing job during a historically difficult time for the arts,” Gottesgen said. “I’m excited to continue the outreach that has expanded the Symphony’s audience, especially its development of younger audiences, which includes its many music education programs that introduce school age children to orchestral music.”
