African-American composer wins London postNews
The London Symphony Orchestra has recruited the US composer and conductor André J Thomas as an Associate Artist.
André J Thomas is a specialist in African-American Music and his appointment will be for three years.
The LSO says: Associate Artists are musicians with distinct influences, quality and style that add diversity and richness to the LSO, creating their own programmes in collaboration with the Orchestra and contributing to the repertoire choices for other programmes throughout the Season. Conductor and soprano Barbara Hannigan was appointed associate Artist of the LSO in February 2022.
