Music Director Xian Zhang

Acclaimed for her connection with musicians and audiences, Xian Zhang serves as Music Director of the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra through the 2023–24 season.

The Star-Ledger/ wrote of last season’s opening program: “Under her baton, Zhang made both lasting music, from the ‘Ode to Joy’ to the national anthem, as well as [Kate] Whitley’s new piece, sound vibrant and relevant right now.” Zhang will become the principal guest conductor of Melbourne Symphony Orchestra in 2020. She is conductor emeritus of Orchestra Sinfonica di Milano Giuseppe Verdi, following a hugely successful period as music director from 2009–16.
