Andrew Crust

The Vermont Symphony Orchestra (VSO) has announced the appointment of Andrew Crust for a four-year term as its fifth Music Director, effective March 2023. Crust succeeds Jaime Laredo, who stepped down from the position in 2021 after a twenty-year tenure leading the orchestra. Crust’s first concert as the VSO’s Music Director will take place on September 30, 2023 at the Flynn in Burlington.

The American/Canadian conductor Andrew Crust is also Music Director of the Lima Symphony Orchestra.

He has been awarded prizes and residencies by The Solti Foundation, the Accademia Chigiana, the Nestlé/Salzburg Festival, and the Vienna Philharmonic’s Ansbacher Fellowship program.

As both a musician and a visual artist, his work is often an amalgamation of these two closely-related art forms. His work in both traditional and digital media has been sold and commissioned throughout the United States, Mexico, Canada, Europe and South America.
