This weekend Lies Askonas Fellow Rebecca Tong makes her debut with the Orchestre national de Montpellier conducting a programme to include works by Sivan Eldar, Julian Guillamat, Philip Glass, Arvo Pärt and Andrea Tarrodi.
The performance marks Rebecca’s return to France following her Orchestra de Paris debut back in November with Mahler’s Fourth Symphony. The coming weeks will see her conduct the Paris Mozart Orchestra in the capital and in Nice, in addition to mentorship projects with Marin Alsop, Tugan Sokiev and Pablo Heras-Casado. Other forthcoming highlights include engagements with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic and BBC Philharmonic.
The concert in Montpellier will be recorded for subsequent viewing on the orchestra’s website.
