Executive is parting with Men's Chorus

Tom Luhnow, executive director of the Seattle Men's Chorus for the past 12 years, has announced that he will be leaving effective June 30. During his tenure, the budget has doubled, the SMC has moved to Benaroya Hall and the Seattle Women's Chorus has been formed.

Luhnow, who says he has been planning this change since last July, says he is leaving "on an entirely good note," and plans to remain in the area and do consulting work with nonprofit groups.
