Recently praised by the Tanjug News Agency for his "exceptional energy and musicianship", Maestro Darko Butorac is quickly establishing himself as one of the world's most sought-after young conductors. Following his debut with the Belgrade Philharmonic in January of 2011 he was invited to both close the 2011 and open the 2012 concert season. In addition to his activities in Belgrade, upcoming concerts this season include debuts with the Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Neuss, the Rubinstein Philharmonic of Lodz, the Tallin Sinfonietta, as well as the Springfield and Tallahassee Symphonies in the US as a music director candidate. He will make his Vienna Konzerthaus debut in June, 2014.
Within North America, Butorac has been featured as a guest conductor with such orchestras as the Charleston Symphony, the Canton Symphony, Orchestra Seattle and the Seattle Chamber Singers, the Montana Lyric Opera and as the Principal Conductor of the Northwest Mahler Festival in Seattle. Highlights of his guest conducting engagements abroad include the Georgische Kammerorchester Ingolstadt, the Mendoza and Neuquen Symphonies in Argentina, the Xiamen Philharmonic in China, the Slobozhansky Orchestra and the Kharkov Philharmonic in the Ukraine, and annual visits with Giuseppe Verdi Orchestra of Parma as the principal conductor of the Fidenza Opera Festival in Italy.
