This Orchestra is a great collective force formed by brilliant individuals. What excited me was not only the Orchestra but the vibrant city of Liverpool and its historic connection with music and sports. An orchestra is a fundamental ambassador for the arts, and together our priorities will be to preserve the great heritage of the music we perform, welcome audiences with unprecedented sounds, and build the future for new generations with fruitful educational projects. I am thrilled to be the new Chief Conductor of the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra and know that together we will lead a new chapter in its musical history.” Michael Eakin, Chief Executive of the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic commented: “We’re delighted to announce Domingo Hindoyan as the new Chief Conductor of the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra; a brilliant conductor with a passion for music and its role in a city such as Liverpool.
