- Listen to David Robertson
Acclaimed by critics as one of the most important conductors of his generation, he is respected internationally for his dynamic interpretations and extensive command of core orchestral and operatic repertoire. This, combined with his expertise in 20th- and 21st-century music, has earned him a strong following.
Robertson, a champion of young musicians, has devoted time throughout his career to work with students and young artists. Dedicated to making classical music accessible to everyone, he is actively involved in community outreach and conducts the Saint Louis Symphony Youth Orchestra and the In Unison Chorus — a diverse chorus representing singers from African-American churches.
