BBC Scottish Symphony Chief Conductor Donald Runnicles to Become Conductor Emeritus
It has been announced today that BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra Chief Conductor Donald Runnicles will step down at the conclusion of the 2015/16 season - and assume the title of 'Conductor Emeritus'.
“Since the beginning it has been my great privilege to lead and work with this remarkable group of musicians,” Maestro Runnicles has said, “ … I am honoured and gratified to assume this new role, which enables me to deepen the artistic bond with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra.”
“The connection between Runnicles and the Scottish Orchestra is one of the great success stories in classical music,” BBC Scottish Symphony Director Ken MacQuarrie has said, “... the new title would guarantee a continued relationship.”
The 59 year old Scottish conductor has served at the helm of the orchestra for the past five years – and with the role of 'Emeritus' he will continue to appear annually with the orchestra from the 2016/17 season onwards.
Runnicles currently additionally serves as Music Director of the Deutsche Oper Berlin and the Grand Teton Music Festival – and as Principal Guest Conductor of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra.
