Anne Ewers will lead the Kimmel Center for at least another three years. The Kimmel president/CEO, whose three-year contract expired June 30, has not yet signed on the dotted line of her new contract, but expects to do so shortly, she said.

"I have to say, of all the places I've ever worked, I love this job the best," she said. "In terms of the history, the people, I love the feel of the community.The arts here, need I say, are marvelous."

Ewers said that despite challenges like higher costs associated with a new stagehands contract, and a lower rent negotiated with the Philadelphia Orchestra as part of the orchestra's chapter 11 proceedings, the Kimmel ended the fiscal year June 30 with a balanced budget.
