Aurel Dawidiuk appointed as associate conductor

The Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra is pleased to announce the creation of a new associate conductorship, to be filled for the first time starting the 2024–25 season for a period of two seasons. The position was made possible by a generous donation from the Haitink family.

Following an international selection of candidates nominated by a panel of specialists, four young conductors auditioned live with the Concertgebouw Orchestra under the direction of its artistic partner Klaus Mäkelä. On the basis of these auditions, Aurel Dawidiuk was chosen as the Concertgebouw Orchestra’s very first associate conductor.

Dawidiuk will be collaborating on approximately half the concert programmes performed during the 2024–25 and the 2025–26 seasons. His duties as associate conductor will be varied, thus enabling him to forge artistic ties with the orchestra. Besides assisting leading conductors both in Amsterdam and on tour, he will work with orchestra musicians in ensemble formation and fulfil a role in the orchestra‘s talent development programme. In the latter half of the 2025–26 season, Dawidiuk will work with the orchestra for a week and conduct several subscription concerts.
