Arlington Philharmonic Names New Executive Director

The Arlington Philharmonic is announced in a press release on Wednesday, Nov. 18 that they named Arlington resident Betsy Campeau Executive Director of the organization. The news comes as Arlington’s professional non-profit symphony orchestra celebrates its tenth anniversary season.

Campeau has had a broad range of professional experience in arts management and as a musician. A clarinetist, she performed in the concert band, symphony orchestra and chamber ensembles of the United States Air Force Band after graduating with honors from the University of Michigan’s School of Music. She also served as the director of marketing and outreach and chief announcer for the Air Force Band until 2009 when she retired with the rank of chief master sergeant, the highest rank attainable by an enlisted musician.

“The depth and breadth of Betsy’s experience combined with her love of classical music is an ideal match for the Arlington Philharmonic,” said A. Scott Wood, Arlington Philharmonic’s music director and conductor. “She will contribute immediately to our tenth anniversary activities and to the growth and development of our organization.” For more information, visit
