David Ogden Stiers

David Ogden Stiers

The Newport Symphony mourns the passing, David Ogden Stiers, who died March 3. David was a guiding light for the NSO since its founding as well as serving as its resident conductor.

Music Director Adam Flatt: "All of us at the NSO are heartbroken. David Ogden Stiers was a generous, loving, and inspirational friend and pillar to our orchestra, and, indeed, to all of us individually. Our orchestra would not be here if it weren't for his great support and inspiration over three decades. His depth of musical feeling, love for our musicians, and charisma made his performances soar when he was on our podium. We will all work to keep David's spirit alive in all of our performances."
