There will be world premieres by Victor Agudelo and Fort Worth composer Till MacIvor Meyn and a U.S. premiere of the orchestral version of the popular chamber work Clockworking by María Sigfúsdóttir…. ‘In the year 2000, the same year he began his 20-year tenure with the FWSO, Miguel won an Emmy Award for a televised Latin Spectacular program he conceived and presented,’ the orchestra says. ‘Now, in Miguel’s final festival weekend with the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra, we come full circle with an exploration of symphonic and jazz music from Argentina, Brazil, Mexico, and Puerto Rico.’ ”
