Rolf BertschConductor and Artistic Director

David WartmanExecutive Director

Following a varied career across public, academic, private and not-for-profit sectors including significant service as a senior executive and consultant, David joined the Calgary Civic Symphony as Executive Director in September of 2016.  David also has extensive experience in organizational governance having served on many Boards as a director and executive over some 30 years.  His knowledge of management and governance has provided strong support to the Board of Directors since joining the Civic.

As with many children David began his relationship with music by starting piano lessons and moved on through the trumpet to arrive at percussion.  He played percussion with the award-winning North Battleford City Kinsman Band, and later in life with the Regina Community Orchestra and finally Westwinds Music Society in Calgary.  During his life he has maintained an active appreciation for music of all genres.

 David is a Saskatchewan native, and a graduate of the University of Saskatchewan (Regina Campus) with a BA (Great Distinction) in Political Science; and from the New York State School of Industrial and Labor Relations, Cornell University with a Master of Science (MS) in Collective Bargaining and Organizational Behavior. He is also a Fellow Certified Management Consultant.
