ABOUT THE ARTISTIC DIRECTOR

Maestro Michael Palmer

Michael Palmer has long been considered one of this country's finest conductors. Mr. Palmer began his career at age 21, when he came to the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra as assistant conductor at the invitation of Robert Shaw. He was soon made associate conductor, and also founded and was music director of the Atlanta Symphony Youth Orchestra. While in Atlanta, Michael Palmer was honored as one of five of the first conductors in the United States chosen by the National Endowment for the Arts to be Exxon Arts Endowment Conductor, and he was soon in demand with orchestras throughout the country. While continuing in his post in Atlanta, he was appointed guest conductor of the Houston Symphony Orchestra for a three-year period. He also worked extensively with the National Symphony Orchestra during this period, and he was, subsequently, named co-principal guest conductor of the Denver Symphony Orchestra.

 

Mr. Palmer founded the American Sinfonietta, which toured Europe for 10 seasons under his leadership, playing to critical acclaim in the major concert halls of Germany, Austria and Switzerland.  This led to the creation of the Bellingham Festival of Music in 1993 (www.bellinghamfestival.org).  Under his artistic leadership, the Festival has become internationally recognized for its artistry. Festival concerts are heard across the nation on public radio and feature some of the finest orchestral musicians and major guest artists from the United States and abroad.  As Artistic Director since its formation, Mr. Palmer continues to lead the Festival each summer.  He also maintains an active international guest conducting season each year and most recently, he maintains a working relationship with one of China's premiere orchestras, the Shenzhen Symphony Orchestra.
