125 apply to be chief conductor of a German state orchestramain
The Deutsche Staatsphilharmonie Rheinland-Pfalz, being a public-funded organisation, has launched an open tender for individuals wishing to be its next conductor, in succession to Karl-Heinz Steffens (pictured).
There have been 125 applications.
In proper procedural fashion, a shortlist will now be drawn up at the state ministry of culture and candidates will be invited for a trial public concert.
No agents need apply.
