Cristina Rocca

We were delighted to welcome Cristina Rocca to the LPO as Artistic Director in November 2020.

Cristina’s broad artistic planning and programming experience throughout her impressive career has embraced some of the world’s greatest orchestras throughout Europe and the USA. In her most recent role, with the Chicago Symphony, she collaborated closely with Music Director Riccardo Muti in her role as Vice President of Artistic Planning. Her previous roles include senior positions with the Cleveland Orchestra, Orchestre National de France, Orchestre Philharmonique de Strasbourg, Orchestra dell’Accademia di Santa Cecilia and the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, where she was Head of Concerts and Programming for several years.

We are delighted that Cristina shares the commitment to inspired creative programming for which the LPO has become renowned, designed to reach wide audiences while proactively promoting sustained diversity and inclusion within all areas of the LPO and our sector more broadly. We look forward eagerly to sharing the artistic vision and leadership she will bring to the LPO, collaborating with Vladimir Jurowski, Edward Gardner and Karina Canellakis, whilst working alongside Chief Executive David Burke and the Concerts Department led by Director Roanna Gibson. We hope our audiences and supporters will join us in welcoming Cristina into the LPO family in the months and years ahead and sharing the creativity and dynamism that she brings with her.
