The TSO named Canadian artists, conductor Shalom Bard as the TSO’s RBC Resident Conductor and composer Kevin Lau as the TSO’s RBC Affiliate Composer. This two year residency will afford Mr. Bard and Mr. Lau the oportunity to be fully integrated into all areas of the TSO and its inner workings.
“We are delighted to welcome Shalom and Kevin as part of the TSO’s artistic team starting in September 2012,” said TSO Music Director Peter Oundjian. “I look forward to working with them both as they continue to build their careers here with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra.”
Bill Anderson had a chance to speak to these two talented artists on the day of the TSO’s announcement.
