Andrew Litton appointed Principal Guest Conductor of the Singapore Symphony Orchestra

The Singapore Symphony Orchestra has earned an enviable reputation overseas through its critically acclaimed tours and extensive discography. The Singapore Symphony Orchestra’s international profile is set to rise with the appointment of Andrew Litton as its Principal Guest Conductor. The American artist’s new role is underpinned by his wholehearted enthusiasm for the orchestra and the work they have already done together. Litton launches his tenure in September 2017 and will return to Singapore in subsequent years to work on up to four projects per season.

Andrew Litton made his Singapore Symphony debut in September 2013 with a programme crowned by Shostakovich’s Fifth Symphony. “Something extra special happened during our first week together,” he recalls. “It’s not so common to connect with players in this way: when it happens, you take note. I felt really welcomed and saw that everyone gave themselves fully to the project.” Being offered a position with the orchestra was an uplifting confirmation of what I’d been feeling right from our first meeting. I eagerly look forward to my first concerts as Principal Guest Conductor, to continuing the great work of my predecessor Okko Kamu who held the position for over twenty years, and to working with the wonderful orchestra and its impressive management.”
