Detroit Symphony names acting concertmaster

DETROIT (AP) -- The Detroit Symphony Orchestra has announced the appointment of Kimberly Ann Kaloyanides Kennedy as acting concertmaster for the 2011-12 season.

Kennedy has served as a member of the DSO's violin section since 1998 and has been the associate concertmaster since 2003.

She replaces Emmanuelle Boisvert (bwah-VEHR'), who announced in May she was leaving the ensemble to join the Dallas Symphony Orchestra.

DSO Music Director Leonard Slatkin says he's confident in Kennedy's "ability to bear the lion's share of the work this coming season."
