The Rhode Island Philharmonic Orchestra & Music School has announced that British conductor Bramwell Tovey, 68, has committed to a new, five-year contract with the expanded title of Principal Conductor and Artistic Director. The new agreement is effective immediately and runs through August, 2026.

Tovey has been the Artistic Advisor and Conductor of the Orchestra since September of 2018, and has quickly become a treasured member of the Rhode Island community. As of this winter, he also now calls Rhode Island home.

Tovey also serves as the newly appointed Music Director Designate of the Sarasota Orchestra, the Principal Conductor of the BBC Concert Orchestra, and the Principal Guest Conductor of the Orchestre Symphonique de Québec.

Following a 18-year tenure as Music Director of the Vancouver Symphony, he now serves as that orchestra’s Music Director Emeritus.
