Since 1926, when the Philadel
phia orchestra engaged Stokowski
as conductor, an impressive list of
guest conductors has taken over
the podium for concert appearanc
es. Outstanding among these musi
cal leaders was Eugene Ormandy,
present baton master and music di
rector of the orchestra, who was
appointed co-conductor with Sto
kowski in 1936.
Conductor Ormandy led the Phil
adelphia orchestra on the first of
its present yearly transcontinental
tours in 1936. Since then the group
has presented concerts in more
than 108 cities, in many of which
engagements have been repeated
again and again.
At full strength, the orchestra
under Ormandy now numbers 110
players, about 24 of whom have
been with the group for a quarter
of a century. These musicians have
established a standard of perform
ance so high that Sir Adrian Boult,
conductor of the famed BBC Sym
phony said: “The Philadelphia or
chestra is certainly the finest or
chestra I have ever heard.”
