Guest conducting has included the Toronto Symphony and the Victoria Symphony; the USA; Europe; and Australia.

  1. Good to see BCO carrying on the tradition started back in 1963 when we were lucky enough to have former BBCSO violinist Stuart Redfern as our first conductor. I believe that Stuart had studied under no less a person than Adolf Brodsky, who gave the first performance of Tchaikovsky’s violin concerto
