It is essential for any conductor at the start of their career to gain as much time in front of professional musicians as possible. The opportunities to access this level of musicianship and experience are very limited.
With nominations from all major UK music colleges for this highly sought after position, the BSO Young Conductor in Association offers rehearsal observations with visiting conductors, extensive podium time with public concerts and BSO Participate projects.
Past position holders have gone on to develop highly successful national and international careers and regularly return to the BSO. Marta Gardolińska is our current Young Conductor in Association, holding the position until the summer of 2020.
