Meet Artistic Director, Robert Franz

Robert became the Artistic Director in 2019

After shepherding the orchestra through the pandemic with two Digital Concert Series, the orchestra was thrilled to host its inaugural set of Summer Concerts at the Chateau in 2021. It doesn’t get any more beautiful than here in the Treasure Valley! 17th and 18th Century music has always been a passion for Robert and these concerts hold a special place in his heart.

When not making music with these incredible musicians, Robert is the Music Director of the Windsor Symphony Orchestra in Ontario where he makes his home. Last season he makes his debut with the Fort Worth Symphony and was named Music Director at the University of the North Carolina School of the Arts, his alma mater.

Robert is particularly grateful for the love and support of his family. Perhaps this year more than any other, it is good to feel alive with this incredible music!
