The Philharmonia are thrilled to announce a new partnership with Los Angeles’ Colburn School to launch the new Negaunee Conducting Program led by our Principal Conductor and Artistic Advisor, Esa-Pekka Salonen. Up to three Salonen Fellows – recruited from around the world – will earn an Artist Diploma in Conducting at Colburn, developing and honing their craft under Esa-Pekka Salonen’s personal mentorship. Together, the Colburn School and Philharmonia Orchestra will establish public opportunities for the Salonen Fellows to lead the world-class Philharmonia in both its residency series and designated tour dates; work with Salonen as assistant conductors on Philharmonia Orchestra projects and connect more widely to the Orchestra’s Emerging Artists programme and outreach projects. The opportunity to identify and work with outstanding young conductors in this visionary global programme with the Colburn School is a wonderful manifestation of the Philharmonia’s mission and vision.
