Minnesota gets another Nordic music directorNews
The Minnesota Orchestra has just confirmed the Dane Thomas Søndergård as its next music director, succeeding the Finn Osmo Vänskä.
The Dane, 52, guest conducted in Minnesota last winter and spring.
He has been music director since 2018 of the Royal Scottish National Orchestra, a job he intends to continue.
Minnesota’s search did not range far, or wide.
It is, with Philadelphia, the only leading US orchestra never to appoint an American-born conductor.
