CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - West Virginia Symphony artistic director and conductor Grant Cooper plans to step down at the end of the next season.

Cooper will serve as an artistic adviser for the following season.

The Charleston-Gazette Mail (https://bit.ly/1NO1LLp ) reports that Cooper announced his plans on Saturday evening during the symphony’s first classical performance of the current season in Charleston.

Cooper says six finalists will each conduct classical concerts during the next season. The position will be offered to one of the finalists at the end of the next season in the spring of 2017.

He says the person’s availability will determine when they take over as conductor.

Cooper has been with the symphony for 15 years.
