AEM International are delighted to be carrying out a global search for a new Chief Executive for flagship Australian arts organisation, The Sydney Symphony Orchestra.
The Sydney Symphony Orchestra (SSO), resident in Sydney Opera House, is a world-class ensemble and Australia’s flagship orchestra. Performing with renowned conductors and soloists in an ambitious and diverse artistic program, the SSO reaches an audience of more than 250,000 in approximately 150 concerts annually.
The Sydney Opera House has announced a $273 million upgrade to the Orchestra’s home venue that will transform the acoustics, technical infrastructure and audience experience. It is the first major overhaul of the Concert Hall since it opened in 1973 and the outcome is awaited with excitement and anticipation by performers and audiences alike. There will be a closure period from mid-2019 to early 2021 when the Orchestra is planning to relocate to the Concert Hall at Darling Harbour.
The Board of the Sydney Symphony Orchestra is seeking an experienced and qualified Chief Executive to provide inspirational, strategic and artistic leadership to this world-class organisation, building on its current high profile and international reputation.
