The Symphony Orchestra of India (SOI), based at the National Centre for the Performing Arts (NCPA), Mumbai, is India’s first and only professional orchestra. It was founded in 2006 by NCPA Chairman Khushroo N. Suntook and internationally-renowned violin virtuoso Marat Bisengaliev, who serves as the Orchestra’s Music Director. Zane Dalal was appointed Associate Music Director of the SOI in September 2014, following serving seven years as Resident Conductor.
The SOI has performed with some of today’s leading conductors and soloists, including Charles Dutoit, Augustin Dumay, Maria João Pires, and many more. Since its inception, the Orchestra has performed around India and internationally, e.g. in Switzerland, Russia, Oman, and the UAE.
