Olivier Ochanine

Music director and principal conductor, Philippine Philharmonic Orchestra
Location: Philippines

A big boost for Conductor Oli, as many love to call him, was winning a string of prizes in 2015, including the first prize at the Antal Dorati Conducting Competition in Budapest, The American Prize in Professional Orchestra Conducting Divison, and 2nd in London Classical Soloists Internationl Conducting Competition. The charismatic immediate past Music Director and Principal Conductor of the Philippine Philharmonic Orchestra (PPO) is beyond ecstatic to have been able to bring the phenomenal orchestra to the exalted Carnegie Hall in 2016. The historic feat took three long years in the making, but it was an absolute dream come true for the maestro. The Doctorate holder of Orchestral Conducting from Cincinnati College – Conservatory of Music under Mark Gibson has conducted masterclasses for the Cultural Center of Philippines. He was also the Principal Visiting Conductor of the Orchestra of the Filipino Youth. Additionally, he is proud of having spearheaded the campaign to save the Philamlife Theatre from destruction by a commercial developer.
