Bob Bernhardt begins his second decade with the Edmonton Symphony this season, continuing to bring his unique perspective, ability, and infectious enthusiasm to all genres he conducts. It’s also a milestone with the Louisville Orchestra as he celebrates his 35th consecutive year and his 20th as Principal Pops Conductor there. Concurrently, he is Principal Pops Conductor of the Grand Rapids Symphony, and is Principal Pops Conductor with the Chattanooga Symphony and Opera (where he was Music Director for 19 seasons). This season is his 24th as a frequent guest conductor of the Boston Pops which he first conducted at John Williams’ invitation in 1992. He conducted two programs at Symphony Hall in Boston in June, and another in August on tour.
He has also been a frequent guest conductor of many American orchestras. A lover of opera, he conducted productions with Kentucky Opera for 18 consecutive seasons, and for 19 seasons with his own company in Chattanooga, as well as many guest conducting engagements with the Nashville Opera. He received his Masters degree with Honors from the University of Southern California’s School of Music, studying primarily with Daniel Lewis. He received his Bachelors-Fine Arts degree from Union College in Schenectady, NY, where he graduated Phi Beta Kappa, Summa cum laude, and an Academic All-American Baseball Player. He and his wife, Nora, both dog lovers, live in Signal Mountain, Tennessee, with their rescued cat, Shoogie.
Mr. Bernhardt last conducted the ESO in April 2017.
