Marc Taddei, Conductor

Music director, Orchestra Wellington
Music Director, Vallejo Symphony Orchestra

Congratulations to Marc Taddei
who was appointed
to his first American Orchestra,
and named
Music Director of the
Vallejo Symphony Orchestra


After 15 years of successful music directorships in New Zealand and a substantial career in Australasia, this appointment signals a return to the land of Marc's birth.

The 85-year-old Vallejo Symphony is California's seventh oldest orchestra and is located in the city of Vallejo, near San Francisco.

Marc continues his association with Orchestra Wellington and will be based now in both countries.


"There was a shouting and standing ovation at the end, that went on and on. It’s hard to imagine a more magnificent climax to what must have been, in every way, one of the orchestra’s most successful years. Marc Taddei has again proved to be a marvellous gift to Wellington’s musical culture."

Lindis Taylor, Middle C

" evening of fantastic music and an astonishing level of achievement.

“This was a sensational performance… the orchestra was magnificent.

“Marc Taddei conducted with tremendous authority – who will ever forget the sheer impact of the opening of the Fifth Door, with full orchestra and organ?”

JOHN BUTTON, Dominion Post

"(Bouquet for Marc Taddei)… whose energy, exuberance, drive and vision proved beyond all doubt that music is an essential feature of daily life in a 21st century city."
