BOSTON (AP) - America’s oldest continuously operating arts organization has a new chief executive.

The Handel & Haydn Society says David Snead, a vice president of the New York Philharmonic, has been appointed president and CEO of the Boston-based classical music organization.

Snead succeeds Marie-Helene Bernard, who left in July to head the St. Louis Symphony.

Handel & Haydn Society board chairman Nicholas Gleysteen said in a statement Monday night that Snead will chart a new path forward for the venerable period orchestra and chorus.

Handel & Haydn is celebrating its bicentennial this year.
