APO Piano Scholar Bradley Wood will give us a recital. Christopher Seaman, the conductor for the APO’s “Czechmate” concert on 2 October will be interviewed by Judith Bishell.
Christopher was educated at Canterbury Cathedral Choir School and The King's School, Canterbury, and later studied at King's College, Cambridge. From 1964 to 1968, he was principal timpanist with the London Philharmonic Orchestra, before his appointment from 1968 to 1970 as assistant conductor with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra. He later served as the BBC SSO's principal conductor, from 1971 to 1977. Christopher has also held the post of Principal Guest Conductor and Artistic Advisor to the conducting course at the Guildhall School of Music.

In the USA, Christopher was resident conductor of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra from 1987 to 1998. From 1993 to 2004, he was music director of the Naples Philharmonic Orchestra, in Florida. In 1998, Christopher became music director of the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra, continuing through 2011and becoming that orchestra's longest-tenured conductor. In October 2009, the orchestra announced the conclusion of Christopher's tenure as director with the 2010-2011 season, and his lifetime appointment as the RPO’s Conductor Laureate. Christopher has conducted recordings with the Rochester Philharmonic for the harmonia mundi label.[6] Seaman is also currently the Artistic Advisor to the San Antonio Symphony Orchestra, through the 2009-2010 season.

His book "Inside Conducting" was published in 2013
