M&T Bank Maestro’s Chair

Maestro’s Chair

M&T Bank is a champion of improving the quality of life in the Southern Tier of New York and beyond. Each year Tri-Cities Opera welcomes world class Maestros (Conductors) to Binghamton to share their unique talents and enrich the cultural fabric of our community. At the helm of every production, each conductor is the visible heart of our art, keeping beat and pace so that the show can function optimally.

M&T Bank Maestro’s Chair funding underwrites the 2016-2017 appearances of Maestro Vlad Iftinca (of the Metropolitan Opera) for LA TRAVIATA and HANSEL & GRETEL, Maestro William Hobbs (Opéra National de Paris, the Salzburg Festival, San Francisco Opera, Chicago Lyric Opera, Seattle Opera, Washington Opera) for L’HEURE ESPAGNOLE & BRETTL-LIEDER, and Maestro Braden Toan (recognized for his talents on Broadway and in the opera world) for HYDROGEN JUKEBOX.

At M&T Bank, we’re proud to support the arts. Tri-Cities Opera is central to the fabric and quality of life in our community and we’re excited to be working alongside them to help welcome three world-class Maestros to the 2016-2017 season. Each performance helps our economy thrive, connects us to different cultures from across the globe and makes the Southern Tier a vibrant, entertainment-filled place to live and work. On behalf of M&T Bank and the entire local team, we hope you enjoy this season’s performances!
