THE ARTISTS Sameer Patel, conductor Internationally recognized by audiences and musicians for his musicality and passionate communication, Sameer Patel is one of America’s most exciting young conductors. A winner of a Solti Foundation U.S. Career Assistance Award, Patel is Associate Conductor of the San Diego Symphony.

In the 2017–18 season, Patel makes his highly anticipated subscription debut with the San Diego Symphony, leads operatic masterworks with the Sacramento Philharmonic and Opera, and conducts modern masterpieces of the 20th and 21st centuries with the La Jolla Symphony. Past engagements have taken him to the symphony orchestras of St. Louis, Phoenix, Toronto, Detroit, Knoxville, Toledo and Jacksonville, as well as the National Symphony Orchestra, Fresno Philharmonic, Orchestra Sinfonica di Sanremo, Orchestra Giovanile Italiana and Leipziger Sinfonieorchester. A graduate of the University of Michigan, Patel furthered his studies with some of the greatest conductors of our time, including Gianandrea Noseda, Daniele Gatti, the late Kurt Masur, Bernard Haitink, David Zinman, and Neeme and Paavo Järvi.

Partnerships with New Jersey arts organizations, universities and civic organizations remain a key element of the Orchestra’s statewide identity. In addition to its lauded artistic programming, the NJSO presents a suite of education and community engagement programs that promote meaningful, lifelong engagement with live music. Programs include school-time Concerts for Young People performances, NJSO Youth Orchestras family of student ensembles and El Sistema-inspired NJSO CHAMPS (Character, Achievement and Music Project).
