Keith Lockhart and the BBC Concert Orchestra

In August 2010, Keith Lockhart was appointed seventh Principal Conductor of the BBC Concert Orchestra and will lead the BBC CO through to its 60th year in 2012 and beyond. The BBC Concert Orchestra plays a diverse mix of music from classical to rock and roll, and is heard regularly on BBC television shows, film, radio (including BBC2’s Friday Night is Music Night, the longest running music program in the world,) as well as in the concert hall. During the 2010-2011 season, Keith Lockhart led the BBC Concert Orchestra during its 15-city tour across America, and conducted his first Proms concert with the orchestra.
