The Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra released more details Saturday about its decision to terminate conductor Arild Remmereit.

The RPO claims that soon after Remmereit was hired back in 2010, "tensions" developed between him and members of the staff, the board and the orchestra.

The board says after Remmereit's first season as musical director, the situation grew worse. However, the RPO did not give more details, saying it would violate its own human resources policy if it did.

The board said after taking into consideration input from musicians and the impact of donors, it decided to terminate Reemereit's contract.

The RPO will create a search committee to find a new music director. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
