Anne Manson
Hailed by The New York Times as “the conductor of choice for opera”, Anne Manson has served as Music Director of the Manitoba Chamber Orchestra since 2008 and recently renewed her contract through 2020. Manson’s strong commitment to contemporary music has led to numerous commissions and recordings with the MCO. Among them are Philip Glass’ Symphony No. 3 and Piano Concerto, and the Juno and Western Canada Music award nominated Troubadour & the Nightingale with soprano Isabel Bayrakdarian. This season Manson gives the world premiere of “Nanabozho” a new bi-lingual music theater work by composer Michael Oesterle and writer Rhéal Cenerini in collaboration with Cercle Molière Theatre. A recording of Baroque concerti with percussionist Evelyn Glennie and the MCO will be released in spring 2017.

As a guest conductor, she has performed with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Houston and Indianapolis Symphonies, the Residentie Orchestra of the Hague, the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra, London Philharmonic, the Royal Scottish National Orchestra, Bournemouth Sinfonietta, the Swedish Chamber Orchestra, Orquesta de Extremadura, BBC Proms, and she has guest conducted regularly with many orchestras in Spain.
