Robert Trevino

The Orchestra Sinfonica Nazionale della RAI, known as RAI Torino or simply The RAI, has announced the appointment of American conductor Robert Trevino, 37, as their new Principal Guest Conductor, for an initial period of three years, starting in the 2021/22 season.

The RAI National Symphony Orchestra had its origins in the RAI Symphony Orchestra of Turin; but today’s orchestra was formed in 1994 as a bringing-together of the four existing RAI orchestras of Turin, Rome, Milan and Naples. Previous Principal Guest Conductors include Jeffrey Tate and Gianandrea Noseda. The orchestra’s outgoing Music Director is James Conlon, and their newly-named Conductor Emeritus is Fabio Luisi.

Trevino is also Music Director of the Basque National Orchestra and Artistic Advisor of the Malmö Symphony Orchestra.
