Czech conductor Ondřej Soukup commences his tenure as principal conductor with Edinburgh University Music Society Sinfonia performing Dvořák’s Stabat Mater. This work was central to Dvořák‘s popularity in the UK, and enabled him to continue his journey to worldwide recognition. EUMS Chorus prepared by Neil Metcalfe joins Sinfonia and Ondřej leads almost 250 performers in front of a full house at St Mary’s Cathedral, Edinburgh. Sinfonia’s next concert features Smetana’s Vltava, Sibelius‘ Spring Song, and Elgar’s Sea Pictures and Enigma Variations.
Ondřej Soukup is an exciting young conductor with professional engagements, a diverse repertoire of 250+ works, and an inherent musicianship which he radiates to fellow performers and audiences. In the 2021/2022 season, Ondřej will make his debut with the Czech Chamber Philharmonic and the Bohuslav Martinů Philharmonic.
