Hailed as “an intelligent and insightful musician” by The Boston Globe, David Feltner is in his eleventh season as Music Director of the Chamber Orchestra of Boston, a group that is winning praise from audiences and critics alike for its innovative programs. As Steven Ledbetter wrote in The Boston Music Intelligencer: “David Feltner put together a truly captivating program …one of the most completely satisfying concerts that I have heard this season.”
Following the inaugural concert of the COB in January 2001, Mr. Feltner was invited to serve as Associate Conductor and Chorus Master for Boston Lyric Opera’s 2001-02 season, for which he received critical acclaim. After his Jordan Hall debut, he was invited to serve as Cover Conductor for Keith Lockhart and the Boston Pops.
