After signing a five-year contract to remain music director of the Elgin Symphony Orchestra through the 2020-2021 season, Andrew Grams said the deal allows him time to further establish the roots of the organization.

“The things I want to do here are somewhat amorphous in terms of the ensemble and team,” Grams said. “But toward the big picture, my goal is to make sure the symphony is better off artistically and financially and stronger than when I started.”

Having the five years also allows more flexibility in planning concert bills and booking guest artists, Grams said, as he hopes to sew a thread between pieces performed on those bills and from concert to concert and season to season.
