Secretary-treasurer (three-year term):

  • Mont Chris Hubbard, a club and theater musician who performs piano and keyboard

Executive Board (two-year terms):

  • Mary Ann Kaza, a retired Oregon Symphony violinist and member of the board of the Metropolitan Youth Symphony

  • Lars Campbell, a jazz and classical trombonist and chair of the music department at Clackamas Community College

Secretary-treasurer is one of the local’s three top elected offices, one of which comes up for re-election each year.

The 565-member local represents orchestra musicians at Oregon Symphony, Portland Opera, and Oregon Ballet Theatre, as well as the Portland Symphonic Choir, Portland Gay Men’s Chorus and the Portland Festival Symphony. It also has members who work under national contracts, such as local musicians playing touring Broadway shows at the Keller auditorium, musicians working on national television productions like Grimm, and musicians who do contract work for ad agency Wieden and Kennedy.
