34 - Bernard Thomas

Before he committed his life to music, Bernard Thomas studied law. After his studies were complete his career took a turn, and he became a disciple of the legendary conductors Igor Markevitch, Eugène Bigot and Jean Fournet. The Frenchman then went on to become a world renowned conductor himself, travelling the globe to conduct orchestras in countries such as China, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Jordan, Germany and Italy.

In 2008, at the invitation of the AVL Cultural Foundation, Thomas travelled to Graz, Austria, where he created a program that drew parallels between the work of conductors and business managers. This insightful presentation of music an ideas, illustrated how a conductor works with each instrument and performer in the orchestra, bringing them together harmoniously to create a musical performance. The culmination of the program was a concert performed by the Styriarte Recreation Orchestra at the Helmut List Halle, conducted by Thomas himself.
