Andrei Feher

General Management

Andrei Feher has already earned a reputation for his musical maturity and integrity, natural authority on the podium, and an imaginative and intelligent approach to programming. At the age of 26 Feher was appointed as the new Music Director of the Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony Orchestra, a position effective from August 2018. Unfortunately, the orchestra declared bankruptcy in September 2023 and ceased all future operations.
Having gained early experience as assistant to Fabien Gabel at the Orchestre Symphonique de Quebec, at the age of 22 Feher joined the Orchestre de Paris as Assistant Conductor to its Music Director, Paavo Järvi. During this time he collaborated with conductors including Zubin Mehta, Valery Gergiev, Christoph von Dohnányi, Thomas Hengelbrock and Jaap van Zweden, as well as regularly conducting the orchestra in their popular Young Public concerts at the Philharmonie de Paris. 
Recent and upcoming highlights include performances with the Tokyo Symphony Orchestra, Orchestre Symphonique de Montréal, Orchestre de Chambre de Lausanne, Orchestre Symphonique de Quebec, Les Violons du Roy, Orchestre Philharmonique de Monte-Carlo, Orchestre National d’Ile de France, Orchestre Métropolitain Montreal, Romanian Radio National Orchestra, Orchestre Symphonique de Montreal, Orchestre Symphonique de Laval, Newfoundland Symphony Orchestra, Symphony Nova Scotia, Hamilton Philharmonic Orchestra, Orchestre Symphonique de Quebec and Orchestre Classique de Montreal. 
A strong advocate of contemporary music, Feher has recently performed works by Eric Champagne, Pierre Mercure, George Dimitrov, Ciprian Pop and Abigail Richardson, as well as the world premiere of Thierry Besancon’s opera for children Les Zoocrates with Opéra de Lausanne. In November 2015, Feher conducted the world premiere of Soleil Noir by Pierre Jodlowski with the Orchestre de Pau-Béarn, which resulted in an immediate invitation to conduct the work in Toulouse in November 2016. 
Born in Romania into a family of musicians, Feher began his musical education as a violinist in his hometown Satu-Mare before continuing his studies at the Montreal Conservatoire when his parents relocated to Canada.

Selected reviews

“This is a young musician of immense talent… Feher has something that is hard to define, an ability to connect with his players, using their skills as if they were the piano and he the pianist. He knew exactly where to soften the tones, where to build excitement and the musicians responded. The audience, dead quiet even between movements, could hear every note, every musical nuance and it was breathtaking.” - The Record, November 2017

“It was nourishing for the heart and the spirit to see [Feher] conduct. He seemed as a dancer who is completely inspired, strong, agile, passionate and yet completely in control.” - Le Soleil, March 2017

“He was simply a joy to watch… a monumentally talented conductor” - MGR Audio, November 2017
