Rising Conductor Roderick Cox to Conduct Boston Symphony

Due to pandemic-related travel predicaments, Cox will replace Dutch conductor Ton Koopman

 

American conductor Roderick Cox will be making his debut with the Boston Symphony Orchestra from November 11 — 13 in Symphony Hall. He will be leading the BSO in Mozart's Clarinet Concerto with soloist and BSO principal William R. Hudgins as well as Mendelssohn Symphony No. 3 "Scottish."

Native to Macon, Georgia, American conductor Roderick Cox graduated from the Schwob School of Music at Columbus State University and Northwestern University, where he obtained his master's degree in 2011.

He was awarded the Robert J. Harth Conducting Prize from the Aspen Music Festival in 2013 and has held fellowships with the Chicago Sinfonietta as part of their Project Inclusion program and at the Chautauqua Music Festival, where he was a David Effron Conducting Fellow.

Roderick was appointed as Associate Conductor of the Minnesota Orchestra, under Osmo Vänskä, for three seasons, having previously served as assistant conductor for a year.

"Regrettably, Ton Koopman has had to withdraw from his upcoming appearances with the orchestra due to COVID-19 travel restrictions," the BSO wrote on its website. "We are thankful that the American conductor Roderick Cox, making his BSO debut, was available at short notice to lead the orchestra in these concerts."
