Jaume Santonja, new Associate Conductor of the Basque National Orchestra

Jaume Santonja, new Associate Conductor of the Basque National Orchestra

The young maestro will be joining the Basque National Orchestra to carry out assistance tasks during the 2020/2021 Season.

This week young maestro Jaume Santonja will start his journey as Associate Conductor of the Basque National Orchestra, a position he will hold throughout the current Season. This beginning will feature his participation in the first educational activity of its own carried out by Musikene and the Basque National Orchestra, where pupils from the Master's Degree in Orchestral Studies at the higher school of music carry out practical orchestral work with other musicians from the professional orchestra.

Jaume Santonja is ‘very happy’ to start his collaboration with the Basque National Orchestra with a project linked to training musicians. For him, being part of the orchestra ‘is an honour and a pleasure, and my goal is to help wherever I can. In a way, it will also be a Master's degree for me to be able to participate in this project’.

Santonja will provide assistance and support to the orchestra during what is already considered to be the most difficult season from an organisational point of view, though also ambitious musically speaking. 

In addition to hie recent appointment as Associate Conductor of the Basque National Orchestra, Jaume Santonja will be starting his second season as Assistant Conductor of the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra (CBSO).  Santonja has had successful débuts at the BBC National Orchestra of Wales (BBC NOW), the RTVE Orchestra (OCRTVE) of Madrid, the Orquestra de la Comunitat Valenciana (OCV) as well as in his first subscription concert with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra (during the celebration of its 100th anniversary).
