Conductor Matthew Kraemer Appointed Music Director of The Louisiana Philharmonic New Orleans

The Butler County Symphony Musical Conductor Matthew Kraemer has accepted the music directorship of the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra in New Orleans beginning in September of 2023.  This is an exciting artistic career opportunity for Maestro Kraemer. It regrettably means however that he will be stepping down as the Butler County Symphony Orchestra Conductor at the end of the current season.

The Butler County Symphony Orchestra along with the Symphony Board of Directors, Symphony Association, and community will feel the loss of such a tremendously talented, and insightful individual. The Butler County Symphony wishes him well into the future as he continues to advance his career with this new and very exciting opportunity.

Matthew will continue to conduct the Butler County Symphony’s three remaining concerts this season which include Symphonic Dances on February 4th, The Inextinguishable on March 4th, and The Golden Age of Hollywood on April 8th.

He also will be participating in a new and exciting joint effort between the Symphony and Butler Public Library. Symphony Storytime featuring Maestro Kraemer reading and discussing concert themed children’s stories centered toward area youth each Saturday morning at the Butler Public Library the day of the Symphony concerts.

Maestro Matthew Kraemer’s leadership and musical influence will continue into the 2023-2024 season.  His artistic planning will feature guest conductors that include Moon Doh and Andres Cardenes among others, including a special encore concert featuring Matthew Kraemer!

The Butler County Symphony Association will begin the search for a conductor in the future.
