Detailed Biography of Benjamin Zander
Benjamin Zander brings music to life every day as the longtime music director of the legendary Boston Philharmonic Orchestra. All of his experience has helped make him a powerful motivational speaker and writer.
A native of England, Benjamin Zander began his musical training in that country and received lessons on the cello and as a composer. Soon Benjamin Zander appearances all over the world became common as he learned more and more about the cello and music. More than 40 years ago, Benjamin Zander speaker appearances this side of the Atlantic Ocean began occurring when he took up a post in the faculty of the New England Conservatory. By 1979, he had adopted his current post today as conductor and musical director of the Boston Philharmonic Orchestra. Among his favorite composers when choosing musical selections for the Boston Philharmonic are Gustav Mahler, Beethoven and Bruckner.
With such a strong leadership background, it makes sense that Benjamin Zander has forged a strong secondary career as a motivational speaker.
