ASO Managing Director Vincent Ciccarello to step down

28 Jul 2022
  • Media Release
by Adelaide Symphony Orchestra

After nearly ten years as Managing Director of the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra (ASO), Vincent Ciccarello has announced his intention to step down from the role.  

He will finish with the ASO on 30 September 2022 to pursue new opportunities and enable the organisation to refresh.

Since his appointment in 2013, Vincent has led the ASO through some of its most exciting moments and helped it navigate its biggest challenges. He has been integral to growing the ASO’s audience through new events, collaborators and music styles, while also developing its learning and community programs.  

ASO Chair Andrew Daniels paid tribute to Vincent’s outstanding tenure.

“As with any great performance, it’s best to leave the audience wanting more. Nothing could be truer of Vincent’s time with the ASO, which unfortunately will soon come to an end,” Andrew said. 

“Vincent’s leadership has been characterised by his ability to innovate and inspire, and the incredible community he has built around the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra.

“He has helped redefine the ASO’s role in the wider cultural, social and economic fabric of South Australia and positioned it well for the future.

“We thank Vincent for his lasting contribution to the ASO and wish him nothing but the very best in whatever he does next.”

Vincent cited the ASO’s 2019 tour of China and South Korea and the highly successful Festival of Orchestra as highlights of his time with the organisation.

“I am immensely proud of all that we have built and the way the ASO has continued to evolve and progress,” Vincent said.

“After nearly a decade in the role, I believe it’s the right time for someone new to continue that trajectory and to bring fresh ideas and energy to the organisation.

“It has been a privilege and a thoroughly exciting journey. I come away from my time here with countless memories and strong, meaningful relationships.”

The Adelaide Symphony Orchestra Board has commenced the process for a global search for a Chief Executive Officer to lead the organisation into its next decade.
