Karina Canellakis begins her tenure as Chief Conductor of the Netherlands Radio Philharmonic in the 2019/20 season. Also in 2019/20, Canellakis becomes the first Principal Guest Conductor in the history of the Berlin Radio Symphony Orchestra (RSB), and she is featured as the RSB's Artist in Focus in her inaugural season. Internationally acclaimed for her emotionally charged performances, technical command and interpretive depth, Canellakis has conducted many of the top orchestras in North America, Europe, the UK, and Australia since winning the Sir Georg Solti Conducting Award in 2016.

Highlights of the 2019/20 season include debuts with the Atlanta Symphony, Minnesota Orchestra, Philadelphia Orchestra, San Francisco Symphony, London Symphony Orchestra, Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France, Munich Philharmonic, NDR Hamburg, and Rotterdam Philharmonic. Re-invitations include the Los Angeles Philharmonic, as well as the symphony orchestras of Toronto, Dallas, Houston, and North Carolina. In Europe, in addition to her concerts with the Netherlands Radio Philharmonic Orchestra and RSB, she returns to the Orchestre de Paris, Stockholm Philharmonic, Gurzenich Orchester, and Zurich Opera to conduct Verdi's Requiem.
