About our Keynote


German conductor Alexander Mickelthwate is the Music Director of the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra. Since his appointment in 2006, Alexander has played a pivotal role in the development of the orchestra, which culminated in a highly successful and critically acclaimed performance at Carnegie Hall in May 2014 as part of the Spring For Music festival. The New York Times noted the performance was “conducted expertly” and the New York Classical review stated “under music director Alexander Mickelthwate, they play with excellent intonation and such a fine overall blend and balance of sound that, on their own terms, they may be the best orchestra to appear in the week’s worth of concerts.


Through very strong and passionate community engagement Alexander has played a major role in significantly raising the overall Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra budget enabling them to increase the season by two weeks. Single ticket sales have risen by 63%, season subscriptions by 42% and the Soundcheck under thirty program by a staggering 1020%. Alexander also played an instrumental part in creating Sistema Winnipeg after guest conducting the Simon Bolivar Orchestra and experiencing the life-changing power of the Sistema program in Venezuela for underprivileged children. He has also led the creation of a highly successful summer season where he works annually with different rock, pop and country bands together with the symphony to connect with younger audiences.
