The orchestra performs its ‘Grand Concerts’ at the Gewandhaus, it is Leipzig’s opera orchestra and it accompanies the Bach cantata performances at St Thomas Church. This means that the Gewandhaus Orchestra plays some 200 concerts per season at its three Leipzig venues and on its various international tours. Its current and 19th musical director is the Italian conductor Riccardo Chailly.
