He came to Syracuse in 2015. And he decided to stay. Loh's contract was to be up in 2018, but he just accepted a new contract to stay with the Syracuse orchestra through 2022. Loh also has taken a new job as music director of the West Virginia Symphony Orchestra (and is ending his tenure with the Northeast Pennsylvania Philharmonic).


Loh brought an artisan storyteller’s sensitivity to the evening’s works, shaping passages with clarity and power via beautifully sculpted dynamics, and allowing instrumental images to emerge with satisfying nuance and detail. Exciting, too, was watching Loh and the orchestra open new windows for themselves and the audience, revealing orchestral character not seen, or heard, before.

Loh, 45, a former resident conductor of the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, was appointed the first-ever artistic director of Symphoria by the musicians and board of directors in 2014. Originally from California, the Yale graduate has conducted professional orchestras across the country, including the National Symphony Orchestra and the Dallas Symphony.
