Thierry Fischer, Utah Symphony Orchestra Music Director, will headline the SLCC Student Undergraduate Philosophical Conference’s artistic session this coming weekend/
Fischer’s address and performance will take place on Monday, November 12 at SLCC's Grand Theatre on State Street, and is called 'Noise and Noises: Being Surrounded by Noise Affects Our Perception and Creativity.' In an interview with Fischer this morning — he is in Europe — he said he was allowed to choose the subject.
“We’ve seen this conference grow substantially because of Professor Izrailevsky’s leadership. It is tremendously exciting to bring an artist of Fischer’s quality, integrity and stature,” said Richard Scott, Grand Theatre Director, in a press release. “To be able to connect the humanities and performing arts in an event like this and explore themes that are universal and unique in their own perspective is rewarding.”
Before becoming the Music Director of the Utah Symphony Orchestra, Fischer was Principal conductor of the BBC National Orchestra of Wales. Fischer has guest-conducted orchestras such as the Philharmonica, Orchestre of the Age of Enlightenment, Czech Philharmonica, among others. He began his musical career in the Hamburg and Zurich Opera as Principal Flutist. He spent his apprentice years in Holland, before becoming Principal Conductor and Artistic Advisor of the Ulster Orchestra. He spent three years as Chief Conductor of the Nagoya Philharmonic and made his Suntory Hall debut in Tokyo in May 2010.
All sessions of the conference and free and open to the public. No tickets are required for admission.
