Keith Lockhart currently serves as Conductor of the Boston Pops, Artistic Advisor and Principal Conductor of the Brevard Music Center summer institute and festival, and Music Director Emeritus of the Utah Symphony. His leadership of the Utah Symphony from 1998-2009 allowed him to stand at the front of that organization’s historical merger with the Utah Opera to create the first-ever joint administrative arts entity of the Utah Symphony and Opera. Since the merger, arts institutions nationally and internationally have looked to Maestro Lockhart as an example of an innovative thinker on and off the podium.
Keith Lockhart has conducted the Symphony Orchestras of Chicago, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, Minnesota, Montreal, New York, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Baltimore, Atlanta, St. Louis, Indianapolis, Singapore, Toronto and Vancouver as well as the Los Angeles and St. Paul Chamber Orchestras, and the National Arts Centre Orchestra (Canada). Moreover, he has conducted the New York Chamber Symphony, the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra (Amsterdam), and the Deutsche Symphony. Recent engagements included debuts with the BBC Concert Orchestra and the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra. In the 2009-2010 season, Maestro Lockhart returned to the Boston Lyric Opera for performances of Bizet’s Carmen and traveled to Japan for performances with the NHK Symphony. During the 2010-2011 season, Maestro Lockhart will lead the BBC Concert Orchestra on their first US Tour and will debut with the Atlanta Opera.
