From world-class violinist to world-class conductor
Karina Canellakis was born into a musical family in 1981. Her mother was a pianist and her father was a conductor, and although she initially focused on a career as a violinist, she would eventually follow in her father’s footsteps. After graduating from the prestigious Curtis Institute in Philadelphia in 2004, she went on to play with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra, before eventually joining the Berlin Philharmonic in 2005. After playing violin with them for several years, she switched the focus of her career to conducting. It didn’t take long for her to make her mark: in 2013 she won the Taki Concordia Conducting Fellowship and in 2016 was awarded the Sir Georg Solti Conducting Award. One of her breakthrough moments came in 2014, when she conducted a performance by the Dallas Symphony Orchestra. It came about due to the injury of the main conductor, and she put on an outstanding performance despite having never rehearsed with the orchestra before. Don’t miss the chance to see her perform live, but book Karina Canellakis tickets on StubHub.
Advancing the status of women conductors across the world
Karina Canellakis’ conducting career includes many wonderful performances for a variety of incredible orchestras, including the Berlin Radio Symphony Orchestra and Radio Filharmonisch Orkest (RFO). She also became the chief conductor of the RFO for the 2019-2020 season, and in doing so became the first woman to ever be appointed to the post. It was just one of many occasions on which she would progress the status of women conductors. Karina Canellakis was also the first woman to conduct the Nobel Prize concert (with the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra), the first woman conductor to be the principal guest conductor of the Radio Symphony Orchestra of Berlin, and also the first woman conductor of the first night of the BBC Proms. The latter brought back memories of 2013, when the conductor Marin Alsop became the first woman to conduct the closing night of The Proms.
