Andrei Feher


Andrei Feher quickly earned distinction for his musical maturity and integrity, natural authority on the podium, and for his imaginative and intelligent approach to programming. At the age of 26, Feher was appointed the new Music Director of the Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony Orchestra, effective in August 2018. Having gained early experience as an assistant to Fabien Gabel with the Orchestre symphonique de Québec, at 22 Feher joined the Orchestre de Paris as Assistant Conductor to that orchestra’s Music Director Paavo Järvi. During this time, he collaborated with conductors including Zubin Mehta, Valery Gergiev, Christoph von Dohnányi, Thomas Hengelbrock and Jaap van Zweden. Born in Romania into a family of musicians, Feher began his musical education as a violinist in his hometown of Satu-Mare before pursuing studies at the Conservatoire de musique de Montréal after his parents relocated to Canada. 

The show will go on, even if it’s raining! The OSM will not cancel a concert due to rain except in exceptional circumstances such as a thunderstorm. In the event of such an occurrence, we invite you to check our Facebook page or our website for updates.

Our concerts in the parks are bring-your-own-chair events! We do not provide seating during these concerts, so whether it be a camping chair, a stool or even just a blanket, if you would like to rest your legs we invite you to bring along whatever you need.

You may bring food and beverages, but no alcohol consumption will be allowed on the premises.

Given the nature of the event, animals will not be allowed on the premises (except for service dogs).

Concerts last typically between 75 to 90 minutes, and there is no intermission during concerts.
