Michael Roháč is a Canadian-born conductor living and working primarily in the Czech Republic. Having studied at the University of Toronto under Raffi Armenian, he moved to his parents’ homeland in 2001 where he has established a reputation as a dynamic and flexible conductor. Between 2004 and 2011 he was music director of the Západočeský symfonický orchestr Mariánské Lázně (‘West-Bohemian Symphony Orchestra Marienbad’), where he conducted over 100 concerts per season, ranging from classical symphonic programs to outdoor summer promenade concerts. Since 2011, he has been a regular guest conductor with many Czech orchestras.

Among other engagements, he has recorded for broadcast with the Czech Radio Symphony in Prague, led the Severočeská filharmonie Teplice in their summer series for seven consecutive seasons and appears yearly as a featured guest with the Filharmonie Hradec Králové in their ‘cross-over’ series. Outside of the Czech Republic, Roháč has appeared several times with the Slovak Radio Symphony Orchestra in Bratislava and the Thüringer Symphoniker Saalfeld-Rudolstadt in Germany. He is also a frequent guest of Toronto-area orchestras, including the York and Mississauga Symphony Orchestras, where he conducted Smetana’s Má vlast in October of 2018 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the founding of Czechoslovakia.
