Rochester, N.Y. - The Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra’s longest-tentured music director returns to Rochester this week.
Christopher Seaman, who now holds the title of Conductor Laureate, will lead the RPO in performances on Thursday and Saturday.
Seaman said he is thrilled to be back in Rochester. “After 13 years, I feel so connected to the musicians and to the community,” said Seaman.
This is the second time Seaman has returned since his farewell as music director at the end of the 2011-12 season.
His performances will be Thursday, March 7 at 7:30 p.m. and Saturday, March 9 at 8 p.m. in Kodak Hall at Eastman Theatre.
In July, University of Rochester Press will publish Seaman’s book, “Inside Conducting,” a humorous look at the art of conducting.
