PHILADELPHIA. — Conductor Yannick Nézet-Séguin’s contract with the Philadelphia Orchestra was extended on Sunday through 2030, and his title was upgraded to music and artistic director.

The 47-year-old Canadian was hired in 2010 as music director starting with the 2012-13 season. He was given a five-year extension in 2015 through 2021-22 that was extended a year later through 2025-26. At the time, he agreed to become the Metropolitan Opera’s music director, a role he still holds.

Nézet-Séguin has hired 23 musicians as the Philadelphia Orchestra’s music director. The orchestra is known for the lengthy director terms of Leopold Stokowski, Eugene Ormandy and Riccardo Muti.
