Missouri Symphony Appoints New Music Director

Taiwanese-American conductor Wilbur Lin will step into the role

Conductor Wilbur Lin will be just the third Music Director in the Missouri Symphony's (MOSY) history.

He comes to the role from a three-year stint as Assistant Conductor at the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, covering John Morris Russell and Louis Langrée, among others. He is also the founder of the Chamber Philharmonic Taipei, which began as a student group but quickly became professional under Lin's direction. The group specializes in both early music and contemporary music.

Lin holds a doctoral degree in orchestral conducting from Indiana University, where he studied with Arthur Fagen and David Effron. Prior to this, he also completed studies at the UK's Royal Northern College of Music with Clark Rundell and Mark Heron, and at Taiwan Normal University with Apo Hsu.

"I am honored and humbled to be appointed Music Director of the Missouri Symphony," Lin wrote on social media.

"I will assume the role of Music Director Designate in September as we build out an exciting season for you. I can’t wait to start making music again with this elegant and exciting ensemble and share beautiful tunes and engaging programs with the people of Columbia, MO and the mid-Missouri community."
