BIOGRAPHY

Danish conductor Thomas Dausgaard is Chief Conductor of the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra. He also holds titles as Conductor Laureate of the Swedish Chamber Orchestra, having served as Chief Conductor from 1997-2019, Honorary Conductor of the Danish National Symphony Orchestra, having served as Chief Conductor from 2004–2011, and Honorary Conductor of the Orchestra della Toscana. He held the positions of Principal Guest Conductor (2014-2019) and Music Director (2019-2022) of the Seattle Symphony.  He has been awarded the Cross of Chivalry by the Queen of Denmark, and elected to the Royal Academy of Music in Sweden.

Dausgaard enjoys a distinctive profile as an artist “of huge conviction and outrageously good musicianship” (Europadisc), renowned for his creativity and innovation in programming, an extensive catalogue of critically-acclaimed recordings, and an “uncanny ability to project a sense of the necessity of the musical trajectory” (Bachtrack). He is passionate about music’s engagement with society and the issues of our time, and its relevance and potential as a vital and innovative force in the life of current and future generations.

THOMAS’ MUSIC ROOM

Musical Discoveries for

Children & Childlike Souls

 

Welcome to Thomas’s Music Room, my new interactive concept for music and children. Each week, we will release a 10-12 minute episode to inspire children to experience music in new, fun and interesting ways.

With this channel, we hope to open a new kind of dialogue with children (and other childlike souls) about music: about the music I love, music of all genres, but with a focus on classical music. With co-founder and co-editor Alissa Rossius, we wish to offer children a different way to discover music – and an interactive one. We invite all of you to share with us what music inspires you to create. It may be a poem or story, a video, music, dance, art, photography, or indeed any art form that may be shown online! Share your creations with us on our new Facebook page, or on Instagram with #thomasmusicroom.
