Gil Rose, artistic director of Monadnock Music, will conduct the Monadnock Music Chamber Orchestra in the Festival’s last Peterborough Town House concert of the 2016 season on Saturday, Aug. 13.

Rose has selected Beethoven’s symphonies No. 4 and No. 7 in continuation of the organization’s “Complete Beethoven Symphony” series.

In 1996, Rose founded the Boston Modern Orchestra Project (BMOP), a professional orchestra dedicated exclusively to performing and recording symphonic music of the 20th and 21st centuries. The BMOP is also the Monadnock Music Chamber Orchestra.

Rose has led the longstanding Monadnock Music Festival since his appointment as artistic director in 2012, conducting several premieres and making his opera stage directing debut in two revivals of operas by Dominick Argento, as well as conducting, directing and producing the world premier recording of Ned Rorem’s opera “Our Town,” based on the play by Thornton Wilder.

As a guest conductor on both the opera and symphonic platforms, he made his Tanglewood debut in 2002 and in 2003 debuted with the Netherlands Radio Symphony at the Holland Festival. He has led the American Composers Orchestra, Warsaw Philharmonic, National Symphony Orchestra of the Ukraine, Cleveland Chamber Symphony, Orchestra della Svizzera Italiana, and the National Orchestra of Porto and made his Japanese debut in 2015 substituting for Seiji Ozawa at the Matsumoto Festival conducting “Béatrice et Bénédict” by Hector Berlioz.

The final Town House concert will take place at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $30 general admission.

Tickets can be reserved online at or at the door.
