By Francisco Salazar

The New York Philharmonic’s Music Director Jaap van Zweden will leave his post at the end of the 2023- 24 season.

The New York Times first reported the story noting that the pandemic made the conductor “rethink his life and priorities.” Van Zweden said, “It is not out of frustration. It’s just out of freedom.”
