SALT LAKE CITY — The Twilight Concert Series had been his baby for 27 years– but Wednesday night FOX 13 News has learned Casey Jarman is out.

Jarman was the director of the Twilight Concert Series and other events until October of last year, though news of his leaving did not break until this week.

Jarman told FOX 13 News Wednesday he and the new director of the Salt Lake City Arts Council, Karen Freider, clashed. He said she sent him termination papers in October and he chose not to fight it.

Jarman said he wished Freider would have tried to talk it out with him.

“It’s sad,” he said. “The thing is, we could have gone down a different path. If she had issues with me, we could have talked it out.”

FOX 13 News has reached out to Freider for comment but has not yet heard back.
