Albert-George Schram, a native of the Netherlands, has served as resident conductor of the Nashville Symphony since 2006. While he has conducted on all series the orchestra offers, Schram is primarily responsible for its Bank of America Pops Series.

Schram's longest tenure has been with the Columbus Symphony Orchestra, where he has worked in a variety of capacities since 1979. He is an audience favorite for all series he conducts there, including Pops and the CSO's summer season. As a regular guest conductor of the Charlotte Symphony Orchestra, Schram in 2002 opened the orchestra's new permanent summer home, Symphony Park. He has regularly conducted the Charlotte Symphony since then.

From 1990 to 1996, Schram served as resident conductor of the Louisville Orchestra. Under his artistic guidance of three of the orchestra's four subscription series, these series enjoyed exceptional growth. The former Florida Philharmonic Orchestra appointed Schram as resident conductor beginning with the 2002/03 season. His conducting duties encompass participation in all of the FPO's series from Miami to Palm Beach.

In 2008 Schram was invited to conduct the Orquesta Sinfónica Nacional of Bolivia in La Paz and the Orquesta Sinfónica Universidad Nacional de Cuyo in Mendoza, Argentina. His other foreign conducting engagements have included the KBS Symphony Orchestra and the Taegu Symphony Orchestra in Korea, and the Orchester der Allgemeinen Musikgesellschaft Luzern in Switzerland. He has returned to his native Holland to conduct the Netherlands Radio Philharmonic and the Netherlands Broadcast Orchestra.
