Karina Canellakis regularly appears with the top orchestras of North America, Europe, the UK, and Australia. Chief conductor of the Netherlands Radio Philharmonic Orchestra and principal guest conductor of both the London Philharmonic Orchestra and Berlin Radio Symphony Orchestra, she is internationally acclaimed for her emotionally charged performances, technical command, and interpretive depth.

This season’s debuts include the Boston Symphony Orchestra at Tanglewood and The Cleveland Orchestra at Blossom Festival in summer 2021, Chicago Symphony Orchestra, National Symphony Orchestra, and San Francisco Symphony. In Europe, she debuts with the Orchestre National de France at Festival de Saint-Denis and a fully staged production of Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin at Théâtre des Champs-Elysées as well as with the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra and Frankfurt Radio Symphony.

Canellakis’s operatic engagements have included Mozart’s The Magic Flute and a fully-staged production of Verdi’s Requiem with Zurich Opera; Mozart’s Don Giovanni and The Marriage of Figaro with Curtis Opera Theatre; the world premiere of David Lang’s the loser at the Brooklyn Academy of Music; and Peter Maxwell Davies’s final opera, The Hogboon, with the Luxembourg Philharmonic. Since winning the Sir Georg Solti Conducting Award in 2016, Mshe has worked with leading orchestras around the world, including The Philadelphia Orchestra, Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin, Orchestre philharmonique du Radio France, NDR Elbphilharmonie Orchestra, Oslo Philharmonic, and the Detroit, Montreal, Toronto, London, BBC, Melbourne, and Sydney symphony orchestras.

Already known to many in the classical music world for her virtuoso violin playing, Karina Canellakis was initially encouraged to pursue conducting by Simon Rattle while she played regularly in the Berlin Philharmonic’s Orchester-Akademie for two years. She plays a 1782 Mantegazza violin, on loan from a private patron.
