The Music Director of the New York Symphonic Arts Ensemble since 1998, German-born conductor Sybille Werner has appeared with symphony orchestras and opera companies in the U.S., Europe, and Japan, including the Fort Collins Symphony in Colorado, Opera Amici in Manhattan, the Long Island Opera Company and the Greenwich Village Orchestra. She made her European conducting debut in 1994, leading the Czestochowa State Philharmonic and the Kalisz Symphony in Poland, followed by concerts with the orchestras of Koszalin, Plock, Bialystok, Torun, Walbrzych, and Kielce. In 1997 Ms. Werner appeared with the Poznan Philharmonic and also recorded works of the American composer Roger Nortman with this orchestra. German State Television subsequently produced a prime time 45-minute biographical documentary about her which was filmed in New York, in Germany, and during a guest appearance with Sinfonietta Cracovia in Cracow.

In May 2000 Sybille Werner led the world premiere of Martin Halpern's chamber opera The Boy from Deerfield in New York, and during the next two seasons she returned to Europe for concerts at Collegium Musicum Schloss Pommersfelden and with the First Women’s Chamber Orchestra of Austria. She made a first visit to Japan to conduct Keiko Fujiie’s monologue opera La Niña de Cera in Tokyo and Kyoto, followed by a recording engagement with the Südwest Rundfunk Orchester Kaiserslautern, and a multi-media chamber opera presentation of Dave Soldier’s Naked Revolution in Virginia. Recently she conducted two productions of Grigori Frid’s The Diary of Anne Frank in New York, and an engagement at the Cleveland Opera in June 2004.
