A regular guest with leading orchestras across North America, Andrey Boreyko returns to the Toronto Symphony Orchestra and Detroit Symphony Orchestra following successful collaborations in recent seasons. His North American schedule this autumn has already included engagements with the Indianapolis and Cincinnati Symphony orchestras.

On 26 and 27 November, Boreyko conducts the Toronto Symphony Orchestra in two Stravinsky works - Petrushka and Pulcinella Suite, as well as Haydn's Piano Concerto in D with Ingrid Fliter as soloist, and Britten's Soirées musicales. The concerts are part of the orchestra's Celebration Masterworks Series.

On 4, 5 and 6 December, he returns to the Detroit Symphony Orchestra to conduct Mussorgsky's Pictures from an Exhibition. The concerts open with Raskatov's A White Night's Dream and feature Behzod Abduraimov as soloist in Prokofiev's Piano Concerto No.3.

Additionally, in his first season as Music Director of Florida’s Naples Philharmonic, Boreyko conducts the orchestra in Poulenc’s Suite Les biches and Mozart’s Symphony No.41 on 11 and 13 December. The programme also features renowned jazz/classical pianist Uri Caine as soloist in Mozart's Piano Concerto No.6 in B flat, K.238, which he performs on a Fender Rhodes piano.
