Continues as music director through the 2015-16 season
Christopher Warren-Green has renewed his contract as music director of the Charlotte Symphony through to the 2015-16 season. The conductor was appointed to the role three years ago, and since then has promoted the expansion of the orchestra’s community and education projects.
‘Christopher’s decision is a sign of dedication to both the Symphony and the Charlotte community,’ said Emily Smith, chairperson of the Charlotte Symphony Board of Directors. ‘We are thrilled to continue to have this conductor of worldwide renown as music director of our orchestra.’
Warren-Green is also music director and principal conductor of the London Chamber Orchestra, and this season will return to conduct the St Louis and Detroit Symphony Orchestras. He has conducted extensively in the US, including appearances with the Philadelphia, Minnesota, Washington’s National Symphony, Houston Symphony and Seattle Symphony orchestras.
