Karina Canellakis to Conduct the Chamber Orchestra of Europe at the Styriarte Festival in Graz Austria

Karina Canellakis
Styriarte Festival

Karina Canellakis will lead two concerts with the esteemed Chamber Orchestra of Europe at the Styriarte Festival in Graz, Austria, replacing Nikolaus Harnoncourt, who has cancelled due to illness.    

Fresh off of two jump-in engagements in the United States - two different programs with the North Carolina Symphony, and a concert with the Houston Symphony - Ms. Canellakis will conduct the COE in an all-Dvorak program of the tone poem Das goldene Spinnrad, Op. 109 (The Golden Spinning Wheel) and Symphony No. 8. The concerts take place in the famed Stefaniensaal in Graz, Austria, on June 27 & 28, 2015.   

Just one year into her conducting career, Ms. Canellakis is skyrocketing to the top of a very short list of a next generation of conductors to follow. She initially trained to be a violinist at the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia and spent nearly five years touring as a soloist in concerto performances and as a chamber musician. She frequently played in the violin section of several of the world’s most revered orchestras, among them the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and the Berlin Philharmonic, and has acted as guest concertmaster of the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra (Norway) on several occasions. At the suggestion of Sir Simon Rattle, she returned to study conducting and attended the Juilliard School of Music. Upon graduation, Ms. Canellakis took her first conducting job as assistant conductor to Jaap van Zweden at the Dallas Symphony Orchestra. In addition van Zweden and Rattle, she counts among her mentors Alan Gilbert, Fabio Luisi, Vladimir Jurowski and Sir Bernard Haitink.
