Howard Griffiths is a British conductor. He studied at the Royal College of Music in London, and since 1981, he has been based in Switzerland. He was principal guest conductor of the Oxford Orchestra da Camera from 1994 to 1997, and he has often performed with the English Chamber Orchestra and the Northern Sinfonia of England. He has also guest conducted many orchestras around the world, including the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, the Orchestre National de France, the Orchestre Philharmonique du Luxembourg, the Tapiola Sinfonietta, the Orchestre Philharmonique de Montpellier, the Warsaw Philharmonic, the London Mozart Players, the Orquesta Nacional de España, the Slovakian Radio Symphony Orchestra, and the Polish Chamber Orchestra, as well as the Zurich Chamber Orchestra and the Brandenburgisches Staatsorchester.
