Orchestre de chambre de Paris Appoints New Music Director

Conductor Thomas Hengelbrock will begin with the ensemble in the 2024/25 season

German conductor and violinist Thomas Hengelbrock will succeed Lars Vogt, who led the Orchestre de chambre de Paris from the summer of 2020 until his death in September 2022.

Hengelbrock founded the Balthasar Neumann Choir and the Balthasar Neumann Orchestra, with which he has been internationally acclaimed for over twenty-five years. As a guest conductor, he has appeared with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, the Vienna and Munich Philharmonics, the Orchestre de Paris, the Orchestre National de France, and the Zurich Tonhalle Orchestra, among others.

He served as the principal conductor of the NDR Symphony Orchestra in Hamburg from 2011 to 2018, and conductor of the Orchestre de Paris from 2015 to 2017.

Hengelbrock was awarded the Herbert von Karajan Music Prize in 2016 for his services to music education. In addition, he is the long-standing patron of KinderPaCT, an organization providing palliative care to terminally ill children.

The Orchestre de chambre de Paris shared on Facebook, "We are very happy about the arrival of Thomas Hengelbrock and about the diverse possibilities of working with Balthasar Neumann Ensembles! We share the artistic and social commitment in the European framework."
