“I’m excited to lead the Ottawa Symphony Orchestra as Artistic Advisor for the 2016-17 season.  The OSO is a large and influential cultural institution that provides, through collaboration and continuity, a unique venue for professional development of current and future generations of musicians within our community.  It holds a special place, serving as a bridge between formal learning environments and the world class orchestras of Canada and worldwide.  As such it is quite exceptional, and adds to the unique cultural value of our city, for which David Currie and the mentors that built the organization should be commended.  It will be an honour for me to guide the orchestra and to build on this amazing legacy, confident that we all support this important mission together in our nation’s capital.”
