Irish conductor Eugene Monteith is the winner of the 2015 ESB Feis Ceoil RTÉ Concert Orchestra Orchestral Conducting Competition. 2014 saw Eugene make his studio debut with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, and in 2015 with both the Ulster Orchestra and the RTÉ Concert Orchestra in the National Concert Hall, Dublin.
Eugene is a former Young Artist at Northern Ireland Opera, and former Music Director of Abergavenny Symphony Orchestra. He is a regular guest chorus master for the BBC National Chorus of Wales, Bristol Choral Society and Gloucester Choral Society. He has been a guest conductor for Sinfonia Newydd, Welsh National Opera MAX, Welsh National Youth Opera, Wales International Academy of Voice and Co-Opera Co.
Eugene has conducted the Bath Symphony Orchestra since December 2011. Under his musical leadership the orchestra has gone from strength to strength, expanding both the breadth and depth of music played and developing a relationship of musical spirit readily apparent in the performances under this partnership. A highlight of Eugene’s tenure with the orchestra came in November 2017, when to mark our 70th anniversary season, we performed Mahler’s epic Symphony No. 2 ‘Resurrection’ with the Bristol Choral Society in The Forum, Bath, to a capacity audience. This production involved over 100 orchestral players.
