By David Salazar

Adam Hickox has been named the new Principal Conductor of the Glyndebourne Sinfonia.

Hickox has performed with such organizations as the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, BBC Symphony Orchestra, Britten Sinfonia, National Symphony Orchestra (Ireland), Rotterdam Philharmonic, BBC Scottish Symphony, Ulster Orchestra, BBC National Orchestra of Wales, Orquesta Sinfonica de Castilla y Leon, and La Fil Filarmonica di Milano.

In his new role, he will conduct opera productions and concert performances as part of the autumn 2024 and 2025 seasons. He made his debut with the company this past autumn in a production of “L’Elisir d’Amore.” He was also assistant conductor for the production of the Poulenc Double bill in 2022.

“This appointment is a great honour,” Hickox said in an official press statement issued by the company. “Being part of the Glyndebourne family is truly a dream come true, and I can’t wait to deepen my relationship with the fantastic orchestra and the Glyndebourne Chorus over the coming seasons. I felt an immediate click with the orchestra from the first rehearsal, and every time I step into the pit, I am excited to work with them once again.”
