Maestro Yaniv Dinur
Winner of the 2019 Sir Georg Solti Conducting Fellow Award, Yaniv Dinur is the Music Director of the New Bedford Symphony Orchestra. He is lauded for his insightful interpretations and unique ability to connect with concertgoers of all ages and backgrounds, from season subscribers to symphony newcomers.
Dinur has brought star soloists such as Yefim Bronfman, Pinchas Zukerman, Karen Gomyo and Vadim Gluzman to play with the New Bedford Symphony Orchestra. Under his leadership, the NBSO has been nationally recognized for its bold, engaging programming and artistic quality, leading to the League of American Orchestras selecting the orchestra to perform at the 2021 League Conference.
Dinur made his conducting debut at the age of 19 with the National Symphony Orchestra of Ireland, which led to multiple return engagements. Since then, he has conducted orchestras around the world.
An accomplished pianist, Dinur made his concerto debut with the Milwaukee Symphony in 2019, playing and conducting Mozart’s D Minor Concerto. He received critical acclaim for his “fluid, beautifully executed piano passages” and “deeply musical playing” (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel).
Born in Jerusalem, Dinur began studying the piano at the age of six. He studied conducting in Israel and holds a Doctorate in Orchestral Conducting from the University of Michigan School of Music, Theatre & Dance.
