2020 Sir Georg Solti Conducting Award Recipient Announced

Conductor Aram Demirjian has been announced as the recipient of the prestigious 2020 Sir Georg Solti Conducting Award

33-year-old American conductor Aram Demirjian has this week been announced as the recipient of the prestigious 2020 Sir Georg Solti Conducting Award.

Presented annually to an American-based conductor 38-years or younger, Aram will receive a US$30,000 grant to be used for professional development opportunities.

A graduate of Harvard University and the New England Conservatory, Aram currently serves as Music Director of the Knoxville Symphony Orchestra - and has previously served an Opera Residency with the Lyric Opera of Chicago, as an assistant to Sir Andrew Davis.

“We have observed Aram's growth as a conductor over the past several years .... he has grown steadily in his craft and is innovative in his approach to classical music,” Foundation Chair Penny Van Horn has this week said.

The Solti Foundation has awarded more than US$500,000 in conductor development grants since 2004.

Previous recipients include rising star conductors Cristian Macelăru and Karina Canellakis.
