Matilda Hofman has a varied and busy conducting schedule in California and Europe. In Europe she has performed at the Salzburg Festival, Berliner Festspiele, Holland Festival, Ruhrtriennale, Luzern Festival, Paris Autumn Festival, and at the Guggenheim in Bilbao. Matilda has worked with Ensemble Modern, Ensemble Recherche, SWR Sinfonie-orchester, Bochumer Symponiker and Kammerakdemie Potsdam. She has performed alongside maestro Ingo Metzmacher in many productions, as well as Clemens Heil and Arturo Tamayo in performances of Luigi Nono’s Prometeo. In 2018 she was on the faculty for the soundSCAPE new music festival in Italy. Matilda works with both instrumental and choral groups, and prepared Chorwerk Ruhr for their tremendously successful debut with the Berlin Philharmonic in MusikFest Berlin, with George Benjamin conducting.

 

Reviews have described Matilda’s conducting as “taut and finely controlled” (San Francisco Gate), and as giving “a striking sense of purpose” (San Francisco Classical Voice). In California Hofman is Music Director of the Diablo Symphony Orchestra and conductor for Empyrean Ensemble, in residence at UC Davis. She is a regular conductor for the Left Coast Chamber Ensemble, premiering many works with them including several operas. With the Left Coast Chamber Ensemble she has also recorded Kurt Rohde’s Concertino.  Guest engagements in California include Festival Opera, the Fremont Symphony Orchestra, Sierra Summer Festival, San Francisco Ballet and Sacramento Ballet. She has also worked at Sacramento Opera, and has assisted Michael Morgan on several operas including Pagliacci, Gianni Schicchi and Il Trovatore. Operas conducted in staged performances include Così fan tutte, Le Nozze di Figaro, Turn of the Screw, Albert Herring, Carmen, Bluebeard's Castle, and Der Kaiser von Atlantis, as well as new works.

Hofman serves on the faculty at UC Davis, and has also served as director of the Early Music Ensemble.  During her tenure with EME she performed a highly successful St John’s Passion, an ambitious undertaking for the group. In the Fall 2019 Matilda will be a resident artist at Oberlin Conservatory of Music, working and performing with the Contemporary Music Ensemble and Sinfonietta.

 

Matilda is very committed to education and outreach. As Music Director of the Diablo Symphony she initiated an education program which includes music to schools in the Contra Costa area as well as family concerts and an instrument drive.


Hofman studied at Cambridge University, the Royal Academy of Music, and the Eastman School of Music and as a conducting fellow at the Aspen Music Festival and School. Her mentors include Ingo Metzmacher, Martyn Brabbins and Neil Varon. She has received awards from the League of American Orchestras and the Conductors Guild of America.
