The sweet sound of music just got a whole lot sweeter for the Idaho Falls Symphony.

The long search to fill one of the organization's key positions is now over.

In a unanimous decision, Alekzandria Peugh of Springfield, Ohio, has been tapped for the role of Executive Director. She'll be taking the reigns in January.

“I am eager to work with the board, the maestro, and the musicians to serve the community with high-quality, accessible entertainment that will educate and inspire us all,” Peugh noted in a written statement. “My approach to the symphony orchestra is that it is an inclusive experience—everyone can love art music, they just need the right opportunity to realize it, and I am thrilled to join a team that is poised to make these opportunities possible.”

Chosen from a field of 30 applicants, Peugh comes to the symphony with experience as the Director of Operations & Education with the Springfield Symphony Orchestra in Ohio since 2014. She attended Cleveland State University as a clarinet player and graduated cum laude with a degree in Music Education. She has extensive experience working with students as a band director, an elementary classroom teacher, and as the primary administrator for the Springfield Symphony Youth Orchestras.
