Nelsons To Debut As BSO Music Director

A new era is about to begin for the Boston Symphony Orchestra.

Andris Nelsons is scheduled to make his debut as conductor and musical director of the orchestra on Sept. 27 in a sold-out concert at Symphony Hall.

Nelsons is the 15th music director in the BSO's history and the youngest in more than a century.

The Latvian-born Nelsons has been music director of the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra in England since 2008. He has made several previous appearances with the BSO, the first in 2011 and most recently as music director-designate in March.

Nelsons will lead the symphony in a total of ten music programs during the 2014-2015 season. Three of those programs will also be performed at Carnegie Hall in New York in April.
