National Philharmonic renews contract with Music Director and Conductor Piotr Gajewski

The National Philharmonic and Piotr Gajewski have signed an agreement that renews Gajewski’s tenure as music director and conductor, and have announced that “two anticipated extensions” of his contract would keep him at the helm of the orchestra through the 2024-25 season.

“Maestro Gajewski was the founder of the National Philharmonic,” said President Leanne Ferfolia in the orchestra’s September 25 press announcement, “and is our heart and soul, so we are so pleased that he will continue with us. We look forward to accomplishing all of our mutual goals in the coming years.”

In commenting on the contract extension, Gajewski said, “I am thrilled to continue my work at the National Philharmonic. I love everything about this organization: the super musicians, the magnificent concert hall [The Music Center at Strathmore], our administrative team and, of course, the board that continues to stand behind me in all that we do. There is so much more I still want to accomplish here, beginning with the season we are about to launch, which focuses on the Leonard Bernstein Centennial Celebration.”

In addition to his music directorship at the National Philharmonic and his guest conducting activity, Gajewski is principal guest conductor of the Silesian Philharmonic in his native Poland.
