Columbus Symphony Orchestra Guest Artists

Gregory Vajda

Hailed as a "young titan" by the Montreal Gazette after conducting the Montreal Symphony in Bartok’s Bluebeard’s Castle and Schoenberg’s Erwartung, Gregory Vajda has fast become one of the most sought-after conductors on the international scene. Reflecting his growing presence and demand in North America, he has been appointed in 2011 the sixth music director of the Huntsville Symphony, succeeding Carlos Miguel Prieto. Concurrently, he continues to serve as artistic and music director of Music in the Mountains, CA – a position held since 2009. He concluded his seventh and last year as resident conductor of the Oregon Symphony in 2012.
