Alex Prior, who sparked an uncommonly deep relationship with Edmonton’s symphony and its audiences during several acclaimed guest appearances since 2014, is the new Chief Conductor of the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra beginning with a five-year contract.
The London-born, 24-year-old’s exuberance, vision, and musical excellence have taken him to orchestras from Munich to Seattle, Hong Kong to St. Petersburg. He will return to Edmonton to assume his new role in the 2017/2018 season, during which he will conduct several concerts on various ESO series.
Prior said he was struck during previous stays by Edmonton’s energy, its big spaces, the beauty of its River Valley, and the intelligence of its classical music audiences.
