David Danzmayr

The Elizabeth M. Ross Music Director

Following on a very successful tenure as Chief Conductor of the Zagreb Philharmonic Orchestra, Danzmayr was appointed Conductor Laureate, the youngest ever to hold this title in the orchestra´s history. Performing regularly to sold-out audiences in Zagreb´s Lisinski Hall and having been awarded the Zagreb City Award, Danzmayr and his orchestra also repeatedly toured to the Salzburg Festspielhaus, where they received standing ovations performing the prestigious New Year’s concert, and to the Wiener Musikverein.

Danzmayr serves as Music Director of the creative and unique ProMusica Chamber Orchestra, an orchestra comprised of musicians from all over the United States. Here, he regularly commissions world-renowned composer/performers to appear in the first performances of their works alongside the great classics, a mission that extends the creative spirit of classical music and places the core repertoire in a modern context.
