“Watch out for Christopher Zimmerman. The Music Director of the Fairfax Symphony has been injecting adrenalin into this determined ensemble since he took over on 2009, and the resulting performances--to judge by Saturday’s imaginative, high-octane concert--have made the Fairfax players a serious force to be reckoned with” (Stephen Brookes, Washington Post, 2013)

Subsequently appointed Music Director of the Fargo Moorhead Symphony Orchestra in 2013, reviewer John Lamb wrote “Christopher Zimmerman gave the… Orchestra a workout Saturday night and gave the audience something to stand and cheer about.” Zimmerman is also newly appointed Principal Conductor and Artistic Director of the American Youth Philharmonic, the Washington DC area’s premiere youth orchestra.

Critics have continued to praise Zimmerman’s dynamic and thoughtful music-making, leadership and programming: “The Fairfax Symphony Orchestra is evidently more willing to push the envelope…Zimmerman’s energy and good will showed their best effect in the Bernstein…It was a note-perfect end to a very refreshing evening that spoke well for the programming vision of Zimmerman who just extended his Fairfax contract for another three years.” (Anne Midgette, Washington Post 2012)
