principal conductors

English term or phrase: principal conductors
单数的时候,principal conductor基本翻为“首席指挥”。
可是有时一个乐团有好多个不同头衔的首席指挥,客座,名誉之类的。
英文里加个复数就全包括了。
问题是中文里这个要怎么处理?

Asker: thanks a lot! 我觉得“首席指挥团队”非常好。“们”字我总觉得有点生硬。

neutral  Frank Feng: 在中文里面说指挥“官”似乎只会让人想到军事语境中的"commander",而乐队中的conductor则叫做“指挥”,没有“官”
