British conductor Christopher Seaman has an international reputation for inspirational music making. His diverse musical interests are reflected in his range of repertoire and he is particularly known for his interpretations of early 20th century English music, Bruckner, Brahms and Sibelius.

With a long and distinguished career in the US, Mr. Seaman was Music Director of the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra until 2011 and was subsequently named Conductor Laureate. During his 13-year tenure - the longest in the orchestra's history - he raised the orchestra's artistic level, broadened its audience base and created a new concert series. This contribution was recognised with an award from the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers.
