Just in: US orch replaces one Brit chief with another

The New Haven Symphony Orchestra have found a music director to succeed William Boughton.

The new guy, just named, is Alasdair Neale, presently music director of the Sun Valley Summer Symphony (Idaho) and the Marin Symphony (California). A Yale grad, Neale was raised in the UK.

It appears he will keep both of his other jobs.

  • This is a brilliant decision! Neale will continue to take the New Haven Symphony to new heights!

  • I had the pleasure of working with him about 16 or 17 years ago. A wonderful talent, a wonderful person. Great news indeed!

  • I’m pretty sure he went to St Catharine’s College, Cambridge as an undergraduate back in 1979 and won an Instrumental Award as a flautist. I was up for the same thing – he got in and I didn’t!

  • Terrific news — Alasdair Neale will do great, solid work there. He already has a true connection to the Yale/New Haven community, and his musicianship is the best.
