Muffitt agrees to LSO extension


Timothy Muffitt has signed a three-year contract extension as Music Director of the Lansing Symphony Orchestra.

Muffitt will conduct the LSO through the 2012-2013 season.

While locking up Muffitt, the orchestra also has a deal with musicians for another year. Members of the Grand Rapids Federation of Musicians Local 56 of the American Federation of Musicians recently voted to extend their contract in Lansing.

Muffitt is also Music Director and Conductor of the Baton Rouge Symphony, where he spends about a week every month.
