The Santa Cecilia National Academy Orchestra has announced that it will welcome Czech conductor Jakub Hrůša as Principal Guest Conductor. His term is three years from the 2021/2022 season.

The Rome-based the Santa Cecilia National Academy Orchestra is currently headed by British conductor Antonio Pappano. Pappano will retire at the end of the 2022/2023 season with the appointment of Principal Conductor of the London Symphony Orchestra.
