Darrell Ang’s triumph at the 50th Besançon International Young Conductor’s Competition, where he took all three top awards – Grand Prize, Audience Prize and Orchestra Prize – launched his international career, leading to the music directorship of the Orchestre Symphonique de Bretagne and numerous guest conducting engagements with Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France, Orchestre National de Lyon, and Orchestre Philharmonique du Strasbourg, Orchestra Sinfonica di Milano “Giuseppe Verdi”, St. Petersburg Philharmonic Orchestra, Konzerthaus Orchestra Berlin, Vienna Chamber Orchestra, Copenhagen Philharmonic Orchestra, and RTVE Symphony Orchestra Madrid, among others. Three years later Darrell Ang was selected to join the prestigious International Conductors' Academy of the Allianz Cultural Foundation and invited to take on residencies with the London Philharmonic Orchestra and the Philharmonia Orchestra. He is grateful to his mentors Vladimir Jurowski and Esa-Pekka Salonen for their invaluable advice and support.

In 2015, Darrell Ang made a triumphant debut with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic which led to an immediate reengagement in the 2015-2016 season. The ambitious program included Ravel Le Tombeau de Couperi, Hindemith Concerto for Orchestra, and Shostakovich Symphony No.9, as well as the UK premiere of Wolf Totem, Tan Dun's latest concerto, which featured the orchestra's principal double bassist, Marcel Becker as soloist.

In his native Singapore, Angbecame the youngest Associate Conductor of the Singapore Symphony Orchestra where he worked with Lan Shui for five years. He also served as the Music Director of the Singapore National Youth Orchestra, bringing the ensemble to the ‘Young Euro Classic’ Festival at Konzerthaus in Berlin. In 2010 Darrell Ang led the World Youth Olympic Games Orchestra in an internationally-televised opening ceremony of the first-ever World Youth Olympic Games in Singapore. As a guest conductor, he has worked with Asia’s top ensembles including the Hong Kong Philharmonic and National Symphony Orchestra of Taiwan. As the chief conductor of the NTSO Taiwan-China Youth Orchestra, Darrell was at the heart of the initiative which brought together the best young musicians from China and Taiwan, leading them in high-profile concerts at the national concert halls of Beijing and Taipei. Darrell’s latest project, The Young Musicians’ Foundation of Singapore and its resident orchestra, raises funds for young local musicians who wish to pursue a career in music.

Darrell Ang’s uncommon gift was discovered at the age of four when he began to play violin, piano and bassoon. His natural artistic curiosity had no bounds, and soon he was inspired to study composition. As a teenager, he followed his musical dream all the way to St. Petersburg where he studied conducting in the grand tradition of the legendary Ilya Musin. There he developed a particular passion for 20th century Russian music which, along with French and contemporary Asian repertoire, remains central to his artistic identity. During his Conservatory days Darrell Ang co-founded an orchestra for the purpose of introducing traditional St. Petersburg audiences to new music, and together they have been responsible for an impressive array of world-premiere performances. Darrell Ang continued his studies at Yale, becoming its first Conducting Fellow. He is looking forward to several recording projects for Naxos Records and ARS Produktion of works by Chinese as well as French composers. Maestro Ang is fluent in six languages: English, German, French, Italian, Russian and Mandarin, most of which he learned for the purpose of rehearsing in orchestras’ native tongues.

Highlights for the upcoming seasons will include his returns to the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, London’s Philharmonia Orchestra and London Philharmonic Orchestra, as well as his debut with the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra, a two-week engagement with the Singapore Symphony and a recording project with the Orchestre National de Lille.
