Kathy Humphreys has been with the Kamloops Symphony Orchestra for nearly 30 years. She will leave her post on June 30.

“I have enjoyed all of the beautiful musical experiences we have created and shared with the community. I believe in the power of music to enrich our lives and am proud of the Kamloops Symphony’s contribution to our region,” she said in a statement released Monday.

Bruce Dunn, KSO music director emeritus, said in the time Humphreys has been with the organization, its budget has grown from $160,000 to more than $1,000,000.

In 2009, Humphreys won the Orchestras Canada Betty Webster Award, a national award that recognizes outstanding service to Canada’s orchestral community.

KSO said the search for its new executive director will begin immediately.
