ISO Board Chair Martha Lamkin said in a statement, "Gary is a passionate champion of orchestral music and has all the necessary artistic and business skills to lead our Indianapolis Symphony.” Lamkin said Ginstling "is the ideal leader to bring us to the next level in patron engagement, artistic innovation, and annual support and donor cultivation through a broader approach to our musical footprint, at home and all across the state.”
Ginstling said in a statement "The community’s response during the recent fundraising campaign was inspiring and demonstrates that the ISO is uniquely positioned to enhance the role of the arts in Indianapolis."
Ginstling and his wife, Marta, have two children.
