Elisabeth Fuchs

Chief Conductor @ Philharmonie Salzburg

Born in Austria, Elisabeth Fuchs studied orchestral conducting, oboe, school music and mathematics at the Mozarteum in Salzburg, at the Paris-Lodron University in Salzburg and at the Cologne Music Academy. She is Chief Conductor of the Salzburg Philharmonic Orchestra and maintains a lively collaboration with renowned orchestras such as the Stuttgart Philharmonic, Zagreb Philharmonic Orchestra and Brussels Philharmonic Orchestra.

Elisabeth Fuchs loves to break down musical boundaries. This has led to special collaborations with Stjepan Hauser (2Cellos), the David Orlowsky Trio, the Klazz Brothers, Rolando Villazon, Iris Berben and many other artists. One of her main concerns is the participatory music education which leads to choir projects with more than 300 participants as well as intensive work with children and young people.
