Members of The Saint Joseph Symphony rehearse for a concert earlier this year.

After 17 years, Saint Joseph Symphony managing director Ann Brock announced she’s leaving the group.

On Thursday, a statement from the Saint Joseph Symphony said she would be exiting the organization to join Mosaic Life Care’s financial division.

Brock began her tenure with the symphony as an operations manager before being promoted to her current position. As the managing director, she oversaw operations that included the group’s budget, marketing, volunteer opportunities and general concert operations.

Saint Joseph Symphony director Rico McNeela said in a statement that Brock was able to turn “chaos into order” with her skills at managing the group.

The symphony announced it is conducting a search for Brock’s replacement.

Brock will conclude her time with the symphony on July 22. An open house will be held in her honor from 3 to 5 p.m. at the Saint Joseph Symphony office at 120 S. Eighth St.
