A report in Saturday’s (4/6) Winnipeg Free Press (Canada) states, “The Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra will have a new resident conductor for the 2013-14 season. Julian Pellicano will take over the baton for Richard Lee, who has recently been named music director of the East Texas Symphony Orchestra in Tyler, Texas. During the 2012-13 season, Lee had been splitting his time between East Texas, the WSO, Toronto’s Korean Canadian Symphony Orchestra and the University of Manitoba Symphony Orchestra. Pellicano has studied music at the Peabody Conservatory, the Royal College of Music in Stockholm, earned his masters of music in percussion from the Yale School of Music, where he also did his masters in orchestral conducting. … He made his Carnegie Hall debut last season, performing with pianist Boris Berman, and has recently conducted the Orquestra Sinfonica de Porto Alegre, Brazil, the Royal National Scottish Orchestra, the Hartford Symphony Orchestra, the Eastern Connecticut Symphony, the New Britain Symphony and Boston’s Dinosaur Annex Ensemble.”
