Under the Royal Patronage of Her Royal Highness Princess Sirivannavari Nariratana Rajakanya
Her Royal Highness
Her Royal Highness Princess Sirivannavari Nariratana Rajakanya, born on 8 January 1987, is the second daughter of His Majesty King Maha Vajiralongkorn Phra Vajiraklaochaoyuhua, and a granddaughter of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej The Great and Her Majesty Queen Sirikit The Queen Mother. The princess has an elder sister, Her Royal Highness Princess Bajrakitiyabha Narendiradebyavati, and a younger brother, His Royal Highness Prince Dipangkorn Rasmijoti.
Princess Sirivannavari is the Royal Patron of the Royal Bangkok Symphony Orchestra (RBSO). She intends to develop the RBSO to be a leading orchestra in the Asia-Pacific region, on a par with premier orchestras in Europe. As the chairperson of the Artistic Committee, she is actively involved with the vetting of conductors and soloists. To help realize the bold vision of the RBSO, she encourages visiting conductors and soloists to play and share their experience with RBSO musicians to strengthen the orchestra. Moreover, the Princess engages actively in rehearsals.
In her unwavering determination to drive the RBSO forward, the Princess visited the Vienna Philharmonic in Austria, together with Dr. Harald Link, the Chairman of the RBSO Foundation, and met with Mr. Daniel Froschauer, the Chairman of the Vienna Philharmonic. The two sides agreed to a programme of co-operation whereby the Vienna Philharmonic sends musicians to Thailand to share experience and perform in concerts with the RBSO. This attests to the will of the Princess to develop the RBSO as a truly world-class orchestra.
