Juan Gallastegui

Executive Director

After a national search, the Bremerton Symphony Association (BSA) is pleased to welcome Juan Gallastegui as the next Executive Director, beginning July 2024. He replaces Thom Mayes, who served as interim Executive Director for the organization since 2023. Gallastegui will move to the area from Medford, Oregon, where he is currently serving as Operations Manager for the Rogue Valley Symphony.


Juan Gallastegui is a seasoned musician, conductor, and administrator, boasting over twenty-five years of experience in the music industry. Beginning his career as a musician, he honed his skills performing in wind ensembles in Spain. Upon relocating to the US, he dedicated eight years to teaching and conducting various organizations in the Washington DC/MD area, overseeing significant productions with symphony orchestras and symphonic bands. In his administrative roles, Gallastegui has held leadership positions in multiple organizations across Europe and the US.


"Juan is eminently qualified to be our new Executive Director and an amazing find," Connie Lord, BSA Board President states. "With the full endorsement of our Board of Directors, we are excited to present him to Kitsap County as the new face of the BSA."


Gallastegui will oversee all administrative and financial operations of the nonprofit, partnering with Music Director Alan Futterman, Chorale Director LeeAnne Campos, and Youth Jazz program Director Derick Polk. He steps into the role as the orchestra begins its 82nd season of music.
