The Singapore Symphony Orchestra and Music Director Lan Shui have appointed Ameican conductor Andrew Litton as Principal Guest Conductor. Litton launches his tenure in September 2017 and will return to Singapore in subsequent years to work on up to four projects per season.

“I am delighted to accept this position with such a fine group of musicians,” comments Andrew Litton. “I can’t wait to start work with the Singapore Symphony Orchestra. We will begin on 8 September with Bartók’s First Piano Concerto, with Jean-Efflam Bavouzet as soloist, and Tchaikovsky’s Fourth Symphony. I’ll play-direct from the piano in Beethoven’s Triple Concerto for our next concert on 10 November, performing together with the orchestra’s amazing concert master and principal cello, and conduct Copland’s Third Symphony. We’ll be looking at American repertoire in future seasons and there are so many other things that I want to perform with these excellent players.”
