Conductor Candidate Search Update

With interviews completed, we have selected four conductor candidate finalists for the 2023/2024 concert season to be announced soon. Each will conduct one concert in the upcoming season.

During our off season, we will be busy scheduling concert venues and planning activities for each candidate who will be visiting in the hopes of being selected as our new Rochester Symphony Director/Conductor. Look for our season schedule announcement in the coming months.

When the season opens in October, be prepared to complete post-concert surveys to share your feedback on how each candidate performed. Audience opinions will be an invaluable part of the search committee’s discussions before our final candidate selection occurs in spring 2024.

For now, we welcome spring, long for summer and look forward to an exciting new season at Rochester Symphony! Thank you for your continued support.

Early last spring, the Rochester Symphony Board of Directors developed a search committee tasked with finding a panel of candidates to replace our Maestro of more than 40 years, Jere Lantz. The committee has been searching for the most qualified candidates to serve the Rochester community and take the Rochester Symphony into the future. Read more about their process to date.
