Winston-Salem Symphony’s new music director: Timothy Redmond

Posted on: July 16, 2019

“After an exhaustive search through more than 120 candidates, the Winston-Salem Symphony is announcing new leadership,” states David Ford in Thursday’s (7/11) WFDD radio station (North Carolina). “Beginning this fall, British conductor Timothy Redmond will replace the orchestra’s longtime Music Director Robert Moody. Redmond currently conducts opera and orchestral concerts throughout the U.S. and in Europe. He’s music director of the Cambridge Philharmonic, a regular guest conductor with the London Symphony and Royal Philharmonic Orchestras, and professor of conducting at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama…. Redmond’s debut as the Winston-Salem Symphony’s fifth music director takes place in October.” Redmond: “One of the things that drew me to Winston-Salem was this idea of being open to new challenges, new adventures, [and] new programming. I think it’s a fantastic organization and the Education Department of the Winston-Salem Symphony is really inspirational…. That’s not just school-age musicians, but that’s the whole community…. I’ve seen the huge benefits that the organization reaps. And also, the increased relevance that we then have to a wider community, because if you’ve performed with the symphony then it’s part of your life, and it’s part of your memories, and it’s part of your education, and it’s part of your future.”
