about

Dutch-American conductor and recipient of the Solti Career Assistance Award, Robert Kahn is currently serving as the Assistant Conductor at the Academy of Vocal Arts in Philadelphia. In 2022, he concluded the Conducting Fellowship at the Curtis Institute of Music, where he was mentored by Yannick Nézet-Séguin. Conversant with both symphonic and operatic repertoire, Robert has served as cover conductor with the Philadelphia Orchestra and the New York Philharmonic, and will join the latter orchestra on tour to Vail and Asia in the summer of 2024. Earlier this season, he was invited to assist Yannick Nézet-Séguin with the Rotterdam Philharmonic on tour, featuring Wagner’s Die Walküre. As a guest conductor, Robert recently conducted the Mannes School of Music’s (Un)Silent Film production featuring Metropolis in concert, as well as Music On Site's production of Die Fledermaus. 

 

For the upcoming 24-25 season, Robert is scheduled to conduct Così fan Tutte with the Academy of Vocal Arts, and will serve as cover conductor for Opera Philadelphia’s production of Don Giovanni. As Music Director finalist, Robert will also make his subscription debut with the Marin Symphony in California. 

Robert Kahn, een Nederlands-Amerikaanse dirigent en ontvanger van de Solti Career Assistance Award, is momenteel assistent-dirigent aan de Academy of Vocal Arts in Philadelphia. In 2022 sloot hij de Conducting Fellowship af aan het Curtis Institute of Music, waar hij werd begeleid door Yannick Nézet-Séguin. Robert is vertrouwd met zowel symfonisch als opera repertoire en heeft als assistent dirigent gediend bij de Philadelphia Orchestra en de New York Philharmonic, en gaat met de New York Philharmonic in de zomer van 2024 op tournee naar Vail (Colorado) en Azië. Eerder dit seizoen werd hij uitgenodigd om Yannick Nézet-Séguin te assisteren met het Rotterdams Philharmonisch op tournee voor Wagner's Die Walküre. Meest recentelijk was Robert gastdirigent voor de (Un)Silent Film-productie van de Mannes School of Music met Metropolis in concert.

 

Voor het komende seizoen 24-25 zal Robert Così fan Tutte dirigeren bij de Academy of Vocal Arts, en zal hij dienen als assistent dirigent voor de productie van Don Giovanni met Opera Philadelphia. Als Chef Dirigent finalist zal Robert ook zijn debuut maken bij de Marin Symphony in Californië.

"Conductor Robert Kahn ... marshaled his forces ... with rhythmic precision, textural clarity and dramatic vitality."
