Benjamin Northey

Leading Australian conductor Benjamin Northey is one of Australia's brightest and most versatile musical stars.

Northey studied conducting with John Hopkins at the University of Melbourne, graduating in 1999 with first class honours in performance, followed by a Master of Music degree in conducting. In 2001, under the Symphony Australia Conductor Development Program, he studied intensively with Finnish maestro Jorma Panula, earning multiple prizes including 1st prize in the 2001 Symphony Australia Young Conductor of the Year Competition. The same year, he was awarded the Nelly Apt Scholarship for studies in Israel, participating in masterclassses with the Haifa Symphony Orchestra.

In 2002, Northey was the highest placed applicant to the prestigious Sibelius Academy Orchestral Conducting Course in Helsinki, Finland where he studied for 3 years with Leif Segerstam and Atso Almila. In 2003, Northey was awarded the 2003 Brian Stacey Memorial Trust Award under patron Sir Charles Mackerras. His 2005 diploma concert with the Sibelius Academy Symphony Orchestra included the European Premiere of Brett Dean's Ampitheatre and was awarded the international jury's highest possible mark. He completed his tertiary studies in 2006 as a guest student in Jorma Panula's class at the Stockholm Royal College of Music in Sweden.

In 2007, Northey was selected as one of three participants worldwide to the prestigious International Conductor's Academy of the Allianz Cultural Foundation, involving a year long mentorship with both the London Philharmonic Orchestra and the Philharmonia Orchestra and conductors Christoph von Dohnanyi and Vladimir Jurowsky. This culminated in a performance of Stravinsky's Symphony in C in June 2008 at London's Royal Festival Hall, to strong critical acclaim.

Within Australia, Northey made his professional debut with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra in 2003, also to critical acclaim. Since returning permanently in 2006, Northey has been a regular guest conductor with all Australian state symphony orchestras and conducted opera and ballet productions. Concert engagements in 2009 included the Melbourne, Sydney, Queensland, Adelaide, New Zealand and Christchurch Symphony Orchestras, the Melbourne Chamber Orchestra and Orchestra Victoria. He also conducted the Taipei Symphony Orchestra Summer School and State Opera of South Australia's production of The Tales of Hoffmann.

In 2010, Northey will conduct a major program with the London Philharmonic Orchestra at Festival Hall and makes his debut with London's Southbank Sinfonia. Concert engagements include conducting the Sydney, Melbourne, Queensland and Tasmanian Symphony Orchestras.
