Leonard Slatkin to become Directeur Musical Honoraire at Orchestre National de Lyon

12.04.2016

Leonard Slatkin will cease to be Music Director at the Orchestre National de Lyon from September 2017. On this date he will become Directeur Musical Honoraire, which means he can carry on conducting without administrative responsiblities. Slatkin, 71, has been music director in Lyon since 2011. The move parallels Slatkin’s recent change from MD to emeritus from 2018 at the Detroit Symphony Orchestra. Luckily, for guest conducting in Europe this means a little more flexibility.
