Ireland's Ulster Orchestra Announces New Chief Conductor

The Ulster Orchestra has announced the appointment of Italian conductor Daniele Rustioni as its new Chief Conductor

The Ulster Orchestra, in Belfast, Ireland, has this week announced the appointment of Italian conductor Daniele Rustioni as its new Chief Conductor — effective from September 2019.

The 35-year-old currently serves as Music Director of the Opéra National de Lyon and Orchestra della Toscana - and will replace Venezuelan conductor Rafael Payare, who has served the position for the past 5 seasons.

"I am delighted and profoundly grateful to take the position of Chief Conductor with this fabulous orchestra ... and I can hardly wait to get started ..." Daniele has said.

"Emotion and brilliance from the musicians combined with the Hall’s magical atmosphere allows the sound to soar from every instrument and envelope you completely," he has said.

"It will be a thrilling adventure for all of us.”
