This Summer (or rather, this Winter), Gueller returns to the Cape Town Philharmonic, where he is Principal Guest Conductor, leading the CPO in its Winter Symphony Season, exploring works by Brahms, Franck, Gershwin, Prokofiev, and others.
In the Fall, Gueller returns for his final season as Music Director of the Symphony Nova Scotia, leading a season opener of Dvorák, Brahms and Canadian composer Alexina Louie. Other notable concerts include the Cherubini Requiem with the RAM Koor, the Estonian National Male Choir.
