Urbanski extends deal with Indianapolis orchestra

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra will keep its music director through the 2017-18 season.

The orchestra announced Thursday that Krzysztof Urbanski has agreed to extend his contract and will continue to split his time between the ISO and symphonies in Norway and Tokyo.

Urbanski said in a statement the decision to stay “felt right” and that he’s eager to be part of the orchestra’s future. The Poland native signed a four-year contract with the orchestra in 2011 and is its seventh music director.

Urbanski will return to the podium at Indianapolis’ Hilbert Circle Theatre for the symphony’s Opening Night Gala on Friday.

He graduated from the Chopin Music Academy in Warsaw in 2007.
