It has been announced today that Bozeman Symphony Music Director Matthew Savery has stepped down from the role – after almost 25 years at the helm.

It was reported last week that a number of allegations of inappropriate behavior had been leveled at the 51-year-old – by a group of 14 former and current musicians and staff members.

“Of paramount concern is the bullying, harassment, mistreatment, discrimination and inappropriate behavior we have experienced, seen and heard from the current Music Director, Matthew Savery, toward our local and guest musicians, BSO administrative staff, and donors,” it’s understood a letter sent to the Orchestra’s Board of Directors this week read.

“I’m fully confident that the investigation will reveal no wrongdoing,” the conductor said at the time.
