CONDUCTOR NICHOLAS HERSH JOINS THE ROSTER

Nicholas Hersh

“The fully symphonic richness of the music for Act 2 emerged in the BSO account, which Hersh molded with a smooth balance of propulsion and breadth. The big lyrical moments had a wonderful sweep, nowhere more intensely than in the grand Pas de deux." Baltimore Sun

Nicholas Hersh is Associate Conductor of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra and Artistic Director of the Baltimore Symphony Youth Orchestras. Since joining the BSO as Assistant Conductor in 2014, he continues to make his mark on the mid-Atlantic region with exciting, innovative programming-notably as conductor and co-curator of the acclaimed BSO Pulse series, bringing together indie bands and orchestral musicians in unique collaborations.

Nicholas directs the BSO's educational and family programming, including the celebrated Academy for adult amateur musicians, as well as a variety of classical and popular programs. He made his BSO subscription debut stepping in for an indisposed Yan Pascal Tortelier, and has since conducted the BSO in a set of subscription concerts each season. As guest conductor, Nicholas makes his debut with the North Carolina Symphony in 2017, and has appeared with the New World Symphony, New Jersey Symphony, Auburn Symphony, National Repertory Orchestra, and the Southern Great Lakes Symphony. Nicholas is a frequent collaborator and guest faculty at the Peabody Conservatory andf the BSO's OrchKids program for Baltimore City schoolchildren.

Nicholas is also a skilled arranger and orchestrator; he has had frequent arrangement commissions from the Baltimore Symphony, the Cleveland Pops, the National Repertory Orchestra and the Jackson Symphony. His symphonic arrangement of Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody has over 1.5 million views on YouTube.
