Qatar Philharmonic Orchestra  
Han-Na Chang, third Music Director of Qatar Philharmonic
12/11/2012
Yesterday, the Philharmonic announced the appointment of Han-Na Chang as their third Music Director, to join in September 2013. With a career spanning two decades as a cellist, Chang joins the Qatar Philharmonic Orchetra as she turns decisively to conducting. She assumes the position of Music Director at the age of 30 — the same age as the average of its 101 members when it was founded four years ago.
Kurt Meister, Executive Director of the Qatar Philharmonic Orchestra, anticipates the significant influence Chang will have over the orchestra. He commented:
“Han-Na has broad knowledge and deep experience, with a particular edge as a conductor in knowing how string players think and perceive. The orchestra will grow and evolve with her.”
For his part, Marcel Khalefe stressed the importance of incorporating Qatari musicians to the philharmonic orchestra pointing the great efforts made by the music academy to form talented musicians.
