Philadelphia Orchestra Adds Performances; Music Director Yannick Nezet-Seguin Increases Involement

New Music Director Yannick Nezet-Seguin, who begins with the Philadelphia Orchestra this season, has decided to increase his involvement and conduct more performances than previously scheduled.

The added 4th subscription week Nézet-Séguin is volunteering this season and 2 additional weeks next year, shows his dedication and confidence in supporting this Orchestra's future as an organization. His duty as music director here is in addition to his titled positions at the Rotterdam and London philharmonics, as well as other engagements in Berlin, Vienna, New York, and Dresden.

His move to volunteer more time to Philadelphia should signal our Orchestra and our city that we have something worth investing in and he will be here to put in the time and the work to help it grow, especially during this tenuous time for the ensemble.

In November, he will take over the conducting duties from Nicholas McGegan during a week of Italian-themed classical music, including Tchaikovsky's Francesca da Rimini, Mendelssohn's "Italian" Symphony, Verdi's Overture to La forza del destino, and Respighi's The Pines of Rome.

"I am eager to spend more time with my new orchestra and with the great Philadelphia audiences who have so warmly welcomed me into their lives," said Mr. Nézet-Séguin. "As we collectively navigate this important period in the ensemble's history, I felt that it was imperative for me to volunteer more of my time and energy to the incredible Orchestra and Philadelphia community that I so deeply love. The repertoire that I have chosen for these concerts serves as a wonderful contrast to my other weeks in the season. I hope to see so many Philadelphians in the upcoming months."
