Australian born Simone Young has a world-wide reputation as one of the leading conductors of her generation in both operatic and symphonic repertoire. In August 2005, she took up the post of General Manager and Music Director of the Hamburg State Opera and Music Director of the Philharmonic State Orchestra Hamburg. She has since been elected to the Akademie der Kuenste in Hamburg, nominated ‘Conductor of the Year’ by Opernwelt Magazine and awarded a Professorship at the Musikhochschule in Hamburg. Simone has received Honorary Doctorates from Monash University and the University of New South Wales, and has been honoured with the Chevalier de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres from France. She was appointed a Member of the Order of Australia in 2004 and in 2005 received the prestigious Goethe Institute Medal. As well as conducting operas in the Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane Festivals, Simone regularly returns to Australia, this year to work with West Australian Symphony Orchestra, Australian National Academy of Music and the Sydney Symphony. Presented with support from Historic Houses Trust, Sydney and Federation Square, Melbourne.
