in 1962 by the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, the original chamber orchestra was expanded to a permanent body of 66 players, a number to be varied according to the demands of programmes. Known since 1971 as the Orquestra Gulbenkian, in each season the orchestra offers a series of concerts at the Gulbenkian Grand Auditorium in Lisbon, in collaboration with distinguished conductors and soloists. It has also performed all over Portugal, and has appeared internationally elsewhere in Europe, as well as in Asia, Africa and the Americas. The Orquestra Gulbenkian has been recognised with several prestigious international prizes. Claudio Scimone, who was principal conductor between 1979 and 1986, was named in 1987 its honorary conductor. Joana Carneiro has held the position of guest conductor of the orchestra since the 2006–2007 season and Susanna Mälkki was appointed principal guest conductor beginning in 2013–2014. Paul McCreesh was appointed principal conductor of Orquestra Gulbenkian in 2013.
