Matthew Coorey is an Australian conductor based in the United Kingdom. His career began in 2003 when he was appointed Assistant Conductor to the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra - this initial one-year contract then became a three-year commitment when he was appointed the RLPO's first Conductor in Residence.

Soon after leaving the RLPO he appeared with the London Mozart Players and the Hallé Orchestra both resulting in re-invitations. His U.S. debut with the Seattle Symphony Orchestra and Sarah Chang was described as “auspicious” and the playing “exulted.”

In recent seasons Matthew has returned to the Stuttgart Radio Orchestra, London Philharmonic Orchestra, the National Orchestra of Ireland, the New Zealand Symphony, the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, the Sydney Symphony Orchestra and the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra. He toured the Middle and Far East with the Palestine National Orchestra and made his debut at the BBC Proms with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra.

Coming engagements include return dates with the Philharmonia, debuts with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, the Adelaide Symphony and reprising Wynton Marsalis’s Swing Symphony with Marsalis and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra.
