Posted on: February 15, 2022

Conductors Bertie Baigent, Tong Chen, Gonzalo Farias, Norman Huynh, Yuwon Kim, and François López-Ferrer will lead the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra at the League of American Orchestras’ Bruno Walter National Conductor Preview, March 16-17, 2022 in New Orleans. One of the orchestra field’s most prestigious events for conductors to showcase their talent, the Preview offers the conductors two days of rehearsals, networking and meetings with industry professionals, and a free public concert with the Louisiana Philharmonic on March 17 in music by Beethoven, Brahms, Haydn, Montgomery, Ravel, and Stravinsky. Orchestra search committees, artist managers, and artistic administrators receive two days of intimate, front-row access to watch and evaluate participants in rehearsal and performance, and to meet them individually. Postponed in 2020 due to the pandemic, the showcase features all six conductors from the 2020 Preview. The concert will be streamed live and made available on-demand for 45 days. Registration for the 2022 Bruno Walter National Conductor Preview is now open; the event is free for League orchestra and institutional members.
