Roderick Cox is a Berlin-based conductor that grew up in Macon, Georgia and that has already made his mark on the world stage with recent and upcoming appearances including the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Houston Grand Opera, and Philharmonia Orchestra in London and Deutsches-Symphonie Orchester. I came across a video of Roderick conducting Tchaikovsky 4 Symphony and was mesmerised with his physicality, musicality and power as he led the orchestra through the movement and wanted to know more about the conductor. When we spoke, I discovered that despite his gentle Southern manner, Roderick possessed a determination, persistence and vision that had and would continue to drive him to wherever he wanted to go.
