The Springfield Symphony Orchestra has named Paul Lambert president and CEO.

Lambert had been interim director for the last 12 months. He oversaw the orchestra’s return to the Symphony Hall stage with the current season being the first in more than two years.

WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill spoke with Lambert.

The record-setting tenure of Springfield Mayor Domenic Sarno. The 2011 tornado and its recovery that remade the largest city in Western Massachusetts. The fallout from the deadly COVID outbreak at the Holyoke Soldiers Home. Those are just a few of the thousands and thousands of stories WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill has covered for WAMC in his nearly 17 years with the station.
