Topeka Symphony hires Kyle Pickett as new conductor
The Topeka Symphony Orchestra has appointed Kyle Wiley Pickett as its conductor and music director. The hiring, which was announced Saturday night at the conclusion of
the symphony's 2012-13 season finale, ended a months-long national
search that began when John W. Strickler, director for 23 years,
resigned at the end of the 2011-12 season.
