“The Houston Symphony announced today that it will be extending its contract with current music director Andrés Orozco-Estrada for another three seasons,” writes Wei-Huan Chen in Thursday’s (3/23) Houston Chronicle. “Orozco-Estrada, who is in his third year leading the symphony, now has a contract that extends through the 2021-22 season. Born in Colombia, Orozco-Estrada studied at the Vienna Music Academy and debuted as a conductor in 2010. He has since directed the Philadelphia Orchestra, the Pittsburgh Symphony, the Cleveland Orchestra and others. He is Frankfurt Radio Symphony Orchestra’s chief conductor and the principal guest conductor of the London Philharmonic Orchestra. Orozco-Estrada joined the Houston Symphony in 2014 as the fourth Roy and Lillie Cullen Chair, replacing Hans Graf.”
