Lars Vogt has been appointed Music Director of the Orchestre de chambre de Paris from 1 July 2020, for a 3-year term in agreement with the City of Paris and the ministry of Culture – Drac Ile-de-France.
With Lars Vogt, the Orchestre de chambre de Paris has appointed a Music Director who is both an outstanding musician and an internationally acclaimed conductor. His presence further strengthens the orchestra’s original artistic approach and its roots in chamber music.
This appointment is the result of a process that was begun more than a year ago by the Board of Directors of the Orchestre de chambre de Paris in constant dialogue with all their musicians. These positive exchanges led to a short list of four candidates including one female conductor on which all the musicians had an advisory vote.
