Please join us on Tuesday, May 30th at the Intercontinental hotel or online via Zoom as we hear from the Ordway's president and CEO, Chris Harrington.

Chris Harrington was named CEO and president of the Ordway in 2021. He joined the Ordway from the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, where he had worked since 2012. Passionate about connecting people through the arts, he has a successful track record in audience development, revenue generation strategy, leadership, and advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion priorities. Among his many achievements during his tenure at the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, Harrington reimagined and launched its venue The CUBE, increased its presentations sevenfold, grew ticket revenue by over 300% and grew audiences to better reflect the demographics of Detroit.

“Chris brings with him a dynamic track record of leadership, strategic thinking, and joyful enthusiasm that will benefit not only the Ordway, but also the Arts Partnership and the Twin Cities as well,” said Ryan Taylor, president and general director of the Minnesota Opera and president of the Arts Partnership Board of Directors. “Our community is fortunate to benefit from his many talents as we work together to imagine a bold, bright, creative future for artists and audiences alike.”
