2019–2020 marks the sixth year in which Andrey Boreyko has served as Music Director of Artis – Naples in Florida. It also marks the start of Boreyko’s tenure as Music and Artistic Director of Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra.
A popular guest conductor with major orchestras across the globe, Boreyko’s highlights this season include a substantial tour of Europe with the State Academic Symphony Orchestra of Russia (including Hamburg, Cologne, Frankfurt and Munich), engagements with the NAC Orchestra, Seoul Philharmonic, Orquesta Sinfónica de Galicia, Salzburg Mozarteum Orchester, Prague Symphony Orchestra, New Jersey Symphony Orchestra, Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks, Philharmonisches Staatsorchester Hamburg, Dresden Philharmonic and Monte Carlo Philharmonic.

Through her acclaimed international concert appearances and her award-winning Naïve recordings, Lise de la Salle has established a reputation as one of today's most exciting young artists and as a musician of uncommon sensibility and maturity.
A native of France, de la Salle recorded the first concertos of Liszt, Prokofiev and Shostakovich in 2008 – a remarkable feat for someone only 20 years old. The 2017–2018 season saw the release of her most recent recording, Bach Unlimited, on Naïve.
De la Salle has been featured frequently with the Vienna Symphony, including a performance in New York on the Great Performers Series at Lincoln Center. Her 2019–2020 season includes returns to the Philadelphia Orchestra, Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra and the National Symphony Orchestra. She makes her debut with the NAC Orchestra, and will also be heard in collaboration with the Quatuor Danel as part of a North American tour.
Lise de la Salle won the European Young Concert Artists Auditions in Paris in 2003, and the following year she won the Young Concert Artists International Auditions in New York. She has also won First Prize in many French piano competitions.
