But even more important, the orchestra has grown under the guidance of Arnold. It is the logical next step to appoint Arthur Arnold our chief conductor. Arthur has

been deeply involved with the orchestra fundraising activities,” says Marina Levine, managing director and founder of the Moscow Symphony Orchestra. “Arthur Arnold’s appointment coincides beautifully with our participation in the Dutch – Russian bilateral year 2013.”
