Wilbur Lin

Taiwanese-American Wilbur Lin has been named Music Director of the Missouri Symphony in Columbia. He will be only the third conductor in this position in the more than 50 years of history, the orchestra said.

Lin was one of four final candidates and he succeeds Kirk Trevor, who led the Symphony from 2000 through his retirement last year.

Lin was recently assistant conductor with the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra. Along with leading the Missouri Symphony, he also assumes the assistant professorship as conductor of the Northern Illinois University Philharmonic and Opera Theatre from the 2022/2023 season.

Lin’s other credits include work with the Taipei Symphony Orchestra, and his role as founder of Chamber Philharmonic Taipei.
