Rossen Milanov is recognized as one of the most-promising figures in the upcoming generation of conductors, and has recently been appointed music director of the Princeton Symphony Orchestra. In addition, this season he makes a series of international debuts including Rochester Philharmonic; Hyogo Symphony, Japan; the Guangzhou Symphony Orchestra; and China Philharmonic, in addition to his NSO debut. He continues to serve as Artistic Director of The Philadelphia Orchestra at The Mann Center for the Performing Arts.
A committed supporter of youth and music, Milanov is Music Director of both the New Symphony Orchestra (a privately-funded youth orchestra in his native city of Sofia), and Symphony In C (one of the USA’s leading professional training orchestras). With The Curtis Institute of Music he conducts one opera production per season, most recently Argento’s Postcard from Morocco (released on CD); and this season he returns to Carnegie Hall for LinkUP!, a program supported and promoted by The Weill Music Institute.
