New York's Symphoria Music Director Lawrence Loh Extends Contract

The music director has accepted a three-year extension to his contract, remaining in the position until 2025

Loh first appeared with Symphoria in 2013, and was initially appointed music director in 2015. Beginning from 2017, he also serves as Music Director of the West Virginia Symphony Orchestra. Previously, he held major conducting positions with orchestras including the Pittsburgh Symphony, Dallas Symphony, Syracuse Opera, and the Colorado Symphony.

“Since the first time I stepped on the podium here, I have felt a connection to our musicians and the audience,” Loh said in a statement. “My family and I feel welcomed in this community, and it is an amazing place to call home. Symphoria is a pioneering orchestra, and the pandemic has shown the resilience of our musicians. At a time when many orchestras stopped performing, we adapted, persevered and even thrived. I look forward to continuing the progress we’ve made.”

Based in Syracuse, New York, Symphoria is a musician-led cooperative orchestra founded in late 2012.
