Jaume Santonja has been appointed Associated Conductor of the Euskadiko Orkestra. The announcement was made on October 8th in San Sebastian.
Since 2018 Santonja is also Assistant Conductor of the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra (CBSO).
“I and the Euskadiko Orkestra are so proud to have this amazingly talented and brilliant conductor and musician as our Conductor in Association. We are looking forward to his personal projects as director as well as his close contact and work with me personally. What a joy to have him in our family!” – said the MD Robert Trevino
“I sincerely believe that the future of the Orchestras lies in establishing professional relationships that go beyond mere occasional collaborations – declared Jaume Santonja - It is important and necessary to create more intense artistic links between musicians, conductors, soloists etc. There must be trust and an exchange of knowledge from all sides in order to achieve maximum result. I am very happy and grateful to Euskadiko Orchestra and its MD Robert Trevino for opening their doors to me and trusting my figure.
