 DETROIT SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA HALL ANNOUNCES RENEWAL OF MUSIC DIRECTOR JARVI'S CONTRACT; ELECTION OF ALFRED R. GLANCY III AS NEW BOARD CHAIRMAN
 DETROIT, July 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Detroit Symphony Orchestra Hall made several announcements today at its annual meeting held at Orchestra Hall, including the election of Alfred R. Glancy III as chairman of the board of directors.
 Glancy has served on the board of directors of Detroit Symphony Orchestra Hall since 1975 and has been a member of the Executive and Finance committees. He has been chairman and CEO of Michigan Consolidated Gas Company since 1984 and holds many prominent civic positions, including co-chairmanship of Detroit Renaissance's Executive Committee and chairman of the Detroit Medical Center.
 Also announced at the annual meeting was a two-year extension of Music Director Neeme Jarvi's contract with Detroit Symphony Orchestra Hall, to run through the 1994-95 season. The contract also includes an "evergreen" provision providing for future extensions. Jarvi became the Detroit Symphony Orchestra's 11th music director in September 1990. Since the start of his tenure, he has initiated several exciting new projects with the orchestra, including a critically acclaimed series of recordings on the Chandos label. He has expanded the DSO's nationally syndicated radio broadcasts to 400 stations, and triumphantly returned the orchestra to New York's Carnegie Hall for a sold-out concert in November 1991. This fall he will lead the DSO in a live, New World Day radio broadcast to 22 European countries in honor of the 500th anniversary of Christopher Columbus' voyage to the Americas.
 In addition to Glancy, five vice chairs were elected, including the Honorable Anna Diggs-Taylor, judge, Federal District Court; civic leader Mrs. Alfred J. Fisher III; Samuel Frankel, president of Frankel Associates; Thomas H. Jeffs II, vice chairman of National Bank of Detroit; and Stanley A. Seneker, executive vice president and chief financial officer of Ford Motor Company.
 Eight new members have been elected to the board of directors, including Don H. Barden, president of Barden Communications; Stephen A. Bromberg, Esq., director and member of the Executive Committee of Butzel, Long, Gust, Klein & Van Zile; Peter D. Cummings, partner in The Fisher Group of Detroit and president of Peter D. Cummings & Associates of Stuart, Fla.; Robert J. Eaton, vice chairman and chief operating officer of Chrysler Corporation; Robert L. Hurst, president and CEO of Michigan Bell Telephone Company; Alphonse Lucarelli, managing partner of Ernst & Young; Thomas R. Ricketts, chairman of the board and president of Standard Federal Bank; and Richard H. Rogel, chief executive officer of Preferred Provider Organization of Michigan.
 Activities of Detroit Symphony Orchestra Hall are made possible in part with the support of the State of Michigan, the City of Detroit Council of the Arts, and the National Endowment for the Arts.
 Detroit Symphony Orchestra Hall is an equal opportunity affirmative action institution.
