Victoria Bond

Victoria Bond leads a dual career as composer and conductor. Her compositions have been praised by The New York Times as “powerful, stylistically varied and technically demanding,” and her conducting has been called “impassioned” by The Wall Street Journal and “full of energy and fervor” by The New York Times. Ms. Bond has been commissioned by ensembles including American Ballet Theater, Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival, Houston Symphony, and Shanghai Symphony Orchestra. Her compositions have also been performed by the Dallas Symphony, New York City Opera, Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra, and musicians from the New York Philharmonic, among others. She was recently honored with the American Academy of Arts and Letters’s Walter Hinrichsen Award and the Miriam Gideon Prize. Ms. Bond, who has served as Exxon/Arts Endowment Conductor with the Pittsburgh Symphony, has appeared as a guest conductor throughout the United States, Europe, South America, and China. She has been profiled in The Wall Street Journal, People magazine, The New York Times, and on NBC’s TODAY, and she was voted Woman of the Year in Virginia (1990–91). The first woman awarded a doctorate in orchestral conducting from The Juilliard School, Ms. Bond has served as music director of the New Amsterdam and Roanoke Symphony Orchestras; artistic director of Opera Roanoke, Harrisburg Opera, and Bel Canto Opera; music adviser of the Wuhan Symphony in China; principal guest conductor of Chamber Opera Chicago; and assistant conductor of New York City Opera. She has worked with Ray Charles (including leading his 70th birthday concert in Warsaw, Poland), André Previn, Pierre Boulez, Aaron Copland, Mstislav Rostropovich, Sixten Ehrling, Leonard Slatkin, James Conlon, Herbert Blomstedt, and Herbert von Karajan.
