Holland's Phion, Orchestra of Gelderland & Overijssel Appoints New Chief

This week, Phion, Orchestra of Gelderland & Overijssel in the Netherlands announced Otto Tausk as the ensemble’s new Chief Conductor

The 50-year-old dutch conductor will hold the position for two years, effective from September 2020.

Otto Tausk currently holds the position of the Chief Conductor of the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra, a position he has held since 2018.

He formerly served as Chief Conductor of the Holland Symfonia and the Chief Conductor of the Tonhalle & Operntheater and Sinfonieorchester Sankt Gallen in Switzerland.

“I am thrilled to have been appointed Chief Conductor of Phion, Orkest van Gelderland & Overijssel. From the very first day I worked with them, I was impressed by the warmth, openness and ambition of the orchestra’s musicians. I'm very much looking forward to getting to know these fantastic people even better and to building on the strong musical connection we have discovered. We will be working together to start a new chapter to what will undoubtedly be an amazing story,” Otto said.

“Otto Tausk is the perfect fit for Phion. He understands what we represent as an orchestra and is full of valuable ideas that are sure to provide us with even more direction, particularly at the present time. I am convinced that his ability to connect people will help us – essentially a merged orchestra based in both Arnhem and Enschede – meld together artistically. We can't wait to get started with them and for our audience to experience the beauty this is sure to bring forth,” Managing Director Jacco Post shared.
