University of Michigan Symphony Orchestra

The University of Michigan Symphony Orchestra, one of the world’s finest student orchestras, is a training ground for young musicians and for the highly regarded orchestral conducting programme, ranked first in the United States. Kenneth Kiesler has been its music director since 1995. It has toured to Salzburg, Evian and Carnegie Hall, performed dozens of premières, including the American première of James P. Johnson’s The Dreamy Kid, and the first performance since 1940 of Johnson’s De Organizer. Its current recordings include music by Leslie Bassett, Michael Daugherty, and William Bolcom, Evan Chambers’ The Old Burying Ground, the three Piano Concertos of Alberto Ginastera and, for Naxos, excerpts from operas by David Amram (8.559420), David Schiff (8.559450), Abraham Ellstein (8.559424), and Paul Schoenfield (8.559418). Its reputation as one of the leading orchestras of its kind was confirmed in 2005 when it received the GRAMMY® Award for Best Classical Album for the first recording of William Bolcom’s Songs of Innocence and of Experience (8.559216-18). In 2011, the UMSO was the recipient of the prestigious American Prize in Orchestral Performance.
