Italian violinist Elisa Citterio has been named Music Director of the Toronto based ensemble Tafelmusik. Citterio was the unanimous choice of the orchestra and search committee. She succeeds Jeanne Lamon, who retired after a 33-year tenure.

Citterio directly becomes Tafelmusik’s Music Director Designate and will fully assume her new role in July 2017. She will open the 2017/18 season with a celebratory program at Koerner Hall and take up full-time residence in Toronto along with her family. According to the media release, she divides her artistic life between orchestral work, including her former role as concertmaster and soloist with the orchestra of the Accademia del Teatro alla Scala di Milano, and an intense schedule as a chamber musician.
