T-D's Millner joins symphony

Frazier Millner is leaving the Richmond Times-Dispatch to become the Richmond Symphony’s Director of Advancement and Patron Communications, overseeing the orchestra’s marketing, public relations and communications, sales and fund-raising.

Millner currently is Vice President of Audience and Content Development at the newspaper, and has held several other executive positions there. Before joining the T-D in 2002, she worked at 64 Magazine, the Cultural Arts Center at Glen Allen, The Richmond Forum, O’Keefe Marketing, the Arts Council of Richmond, TheatreVirginia and the Virginia Chamber of Commerce. She served on the symphony’s board of directors from 2005 until earlier this year.

In a statement issued by the orchestra, Millner said she is making the move "to pursue my long-term plan for re-entering the arts and cultural community. . . . This offers the opportunity to put my experience to work for an organization [that] I believe has tremendous potential to grow and flourish."
