Richard Kaufman, Conductor
Richard Kaufman has devoted much of his musical life to conducting and supervising music for film and television productions, as well as performing film and classical music in concert halls and on recordings. The 2016-2017 concert season marks Richard’s twenty-sixth season as Principal Pops Conductor of Orange County’s Pacific Symphony. He holds the permanent title of Pops Conductor Laureate with the Dallas Symphony, and is in his eleventh season with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra concert series, CSO at the Movies, conducting classic and contemporary film music, as well as classical music used in motion pictures. Richard regularly appears as a guest conductor with symphony orchestras throughout both the United States and around the world including Cleveland, St. Louis, San Diego, Indianapolis, Utah, Edmonton, the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, the Royal Scottish National Orchestra, and the RTE Concert Orchestra in Dublin, Ireland. Richard has conducted throughout Australia, including sold-out performances at the Sydney Opera House. Following his 2014 conducting debut at the Catalina Island Museum Silent Film Gala, Richard returned to Catalina in 2015, conducting the 1925 classic thriller, “Phantom of the Opera” with Organist Dennis James. In May 2015, Kaufman made his conducting debut with the Boston Pops, substituting for John Williams at the Annual Pops Film Night. This past summer, Mr. Williams graciously invited him to share the podium at the annual Tanglewood Film Night. Recently, Richard conducted a live performance of Michael Giacchino’s score for Star Trek Beyond with the San Diego Symphony, accompanying the film in its gala world premiere. It was the first time a film was presented outdoors in IMAX. Read More>>
