Good news!

Thursday 20th January, 2011

Great news for Brooklyn Philharmonic and for our phenomenally gifted principal conductor, Alan Pierson! As part of a dramatic overhaul, the orchestra has just appointed Alan to the post of Artistic Director, to help to realise its new artistic vision and to co-ordinate its ground-breaking outreach projects.

Alan is designing a new flagship series called “Junctions,” which
will bring the orchestra into communities all around the borough,
developing original collaborations with artists that enrich the
communities it visits as well as the orchestra itself.

Chairman of the Board Jack W. Rainey commented, “Alan Pierson is a
brilliant choice to forge this new artistic vision. An exciting and
inspiring musician and leader, he is well-connected to the breadth of
groundbreaking new music being generated in Brooklyn and beyond.”
