Dragon’s new lair

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Music -

FOL­LOW­ING an in­ter­na­tional search and au­di­tion process with more than 200 can­di­dates, the Colorado Sym­phony has ap­pointed WASO as­sis­tant con­duc­tor Christo­pher Dragon as its as­so­ciate con­duc­tor.

The ris­ing young WA con­duc­tor is “very ex­cited” about his new po­si­tion.

“This would not have been pos­si­ble with­out the sup­port of the West Aus­tralian Sym­phony Or­ches­tra, Sym­phony Ser­vices In­ter­na­tional and the Si­mon Lee Foun­da­tion,” Dragon said.

“Work­ing with and learn­ing from WA’s only pro­fes­sional or­ches­tra and en­joy­ing the close men­tor­ship of chief con­duc­tor Asher Fisch has been a dream come true for me.

“I feel so for­tu­nate to have been given this op­por­tu­nity and know I would not be where I am to­day with­out it.”

Dragon will con­tinue in the role of as­sis­tant con­duc­tor with WASO un­til the end of De­cem­ber.
