Richard Pontzious is the Artistic Director of Asian Youth Orchestra. He graduated from New York College of Music and thereafter developed the Instruments Department of Saint Mary's University in Tokyo. In 1987 he co-founded Asian Youth Orchestra with the violinist and conductor Yehudi Menuhin, and thereby began his cooperation with prestigious musicians including Yehudi Menuhin, Yo-Yo Ma, Elly Ameling, LIN Zhaoliang and Alicia de Larrocha. The Orchestra was commended by critics as "an amazing youth orchestra, one of the best in the world".

In 1980s, Richard became conductor of the famous Symphony Orchestra of Shanghai Conservatory of Music. He led the concert tours of the orchestra, giving the Chinese premiere of Prokofiev's Violin Concerto in G minor and the first concert of all Brahms programmes after World War II. As the guest conductor of orchestras from Nanjing, Hangzhou, Fuzhou and other cities, he organized the premieres of Beethoven's Symphony No. 8 in these cities, conducted a series of Beethoven concerts in Northern China, and laid a foundation for the revival of Harbin Summer Music Festival. For all his contributions, he was called the music missionary in China.

In order to celebrate his achievements, Lord Menuhin and the master Comissiona invited Richard to conduct the last programmes in the last concerts of every music season since the premiere of Asian Youth Orchestra in 1990. Apart from this, Richard also performed in Berlin, Tokyo, Osaka, Manila and Italy. He was awarded Bronze Bauhina Star by the Hong Kong SAR Government in 2000.
