The Boston Symphony Orchestra has tapped Ken-David Masur as its new assistant conductor.
The Grammy-nominated producer and conductor will kick off his two-year term with the orchestra during the 2015 Tanglewood season.
Masur will then make his BSO subscription series debut during the 2015-16 season.
In July of 2012, he made an appearance with the BSO while sharing the podium with his father, Kurt Masur, as they led Mozart’s Eine kleine Nachtmusik and Piano Concerto in C minor.
