The Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra has announced that Domingo Hindoyan will become the organization’s Chief Conductor, effective September 2021.

The Venezuelan conductor will be succeeding Vasily Petrenko, who will be named Conductor Laureate for his 15 years of service to the company.

On his new appointment, Hindoyan wrote, “Since the very first time I worked with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, I encountered an amazing group of musicians whose warm personalities and passion for music shone through. This Orchestra is a great collective force formed by brilliant individuals.

“What excited me was not only the Orchestra but the vibrant city of Liverpool and its historic connection with music and sports. An orchestra is a fundamental ambassador for the arts, and together our priorities will be to preserve the great heritage of the music we perform, welcome audiences with unprecedented sounds, and build the future for new generations with fruitful educational projects.

“I am thrilled to be the new Chief Conductor of the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra and know that together we will lead a new chapter in its musical history.”

Hindoyan is currently the Principal Guest Conductor of the Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra and has worked with a number of international orchestras and opera companies, such as the London Philharmonic Orchestra, the Metropolitan Opera, Vienna Staatsoper, Deutsche Staatsoper Berlin, Lyric Opera Chicago, the Mariinsky Theatre, and more.
