NSO extends contract of Pops conductor Steven Reineke

The National Symphony Orchestra has extended the contract of pops conductor Steven Reineke through the 2017-18 season. Reineke, who joined the NSO Pops as principal conductor in 2011, also serves as music director of the New York Pops and pops conductor of the Long Beach and Modesto symphony orchestras in California.

“Steven Reineke’s broad musical interests have brought new ideas and new programming to the NSO,” the orchestra’s executive director, Rita Shapiro, said in a statement. “We are delighted to know that Steven will continue to imbue the NSO Pops with variety and enthusiasm.”

Since 2011, Reineke has led the NSO through 50 performances at the Kennedy Center and the summer season at Wolf Trap. Reineke succeeded the late Marvin Hamlisch, who led the NSO Pops for 11 years. The NSO Pops will begin its 2013-14 season on Sept. 29 with “Cirque de la Symphonie” at the Kennedy Center.
