VANCOUVER — The Clark County Arts Commission (CCAC) is busy with conductors and commissioners right now, as they start the fall season.
Maestro Salvador Brotons, music director of the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra, has been honored with Clark County Arts Commission’s Lifetime Achievement Award for 2020.
The announcement of Brotons’ achievement was made Sunday (Sept. 20), at the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra’s Gala of 2020, celebrating Brotons’ 30 years leading the orchestra.
At the virtual celebration, the following statement from the Arts Commission said, “For thirty years Maestro Salvador Brotons has been a gift to our community, offering generously his knowledge, passion, leadership and consummate artistry as a musician, composer, and conductor of our Vancouver Symphony Orchestra.
“It is with great joy and deep gratitude that the Clark County Arts Commission honors Maestro Salvador Brotons with the 2020 Lifetime Achievement Award for his significant contribution to local, national and international arts and culture.”
In addition to awards, the commission is also conducting a search for new commissioners to fill five vacancies from Vancouver to Woodland.
There are presently six openings for representatives on the Clark County Arts Commission:
• Commissioner representing the City of Camas
• Commissioner representing the City of LaCenter
• Commissioner representing the City of Vancouver
• Commissioner representing the City of Washougal
