Domingo Hindoyan is today announced as the next Chief Conductor of the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, with his tenure set to begin in September 2021.
“Since the very first time I worked with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra,” says Domingo, “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.”
As Chief Conductor, Domingo will lead an organisation that includes the Orchestra plus the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Choir and Liverpool Philharmonic Hall. The organisation also oversees music education initiatives Harmony Liverpool, plus music and mental health programmes alongside NHS trusts. Domingo will play a part in their commitment to music education, talent development, and community engagement.
Domingo currently serves as Principal Guest Conductor of the Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra and conducts celebrated orchestras around the world. His engagements have included appearances with the Philharmonia Orchestra, London Philharmonic Orchestra, Bern Symphony Orchestra, Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France, Metropolitan Opera, Vienna Staatsoper, and more.
