Cleveland Institute of Music alumna Mélisse Brunet has been selected as one of six conductors to be showcased in the League of American Orchestras’ Bruno Walter National Conductor Preview. Brunet studied with Carl Topilow, earning her professional studies certificate in orchestral conducting in 2012.

Since 1995, the Bruno Walter National Conductor Preview has showcased 85 conductors, with more than 50 orchestras engaging participants in conductor/music director appointments as a direct result. It is one of the field’s most prestigious and effective pathways for orchestra search committees to encounter new talent.

“Seemingly every week, important news comes out of Cleveland, as CIM graduates become the future of classical music,” said Paul W. Hogle, CIM President & CEO. “Maestra Brunet is the next artist up by distinguishing herself through her selection to the elite national conductor preview. The Preview is a major pipeline for talented conductors and has successfully catalyzed important careers in our field. It is a credit to Mélisse’s extraordinary hard work and her incomparable training here in Cleveland.”

Brunet will lead the Nashville Symphony Orchestra in rehearsals and performance on April 3 and 4, 2018. Find more information about the Preview, here.

“CIM offered me trust, love, high-level music making and strong support, things that are essential to becoming a happy and fulfilled professional,” Brunet explained. “CIM and its phenomenal patrons, faculty, students and administration allowed me to become myself, and I am extremely thankful to Carl Topilow and his vision for my future.”

Over two days, participants met the conductors, observed them in rehearsal settings, and experienced their high-caliber artistry in person as they led the GRAMMY Award-winning Nashville Symphony under the guidance of music director Giancarlo Guerrero.

The event culminated with a final public performance, which—for the first time in the history of the Preview—will be live-streamed. Conductors display their versatility with an eclectic program of works by Beethoven, Bernstein, Debussy, Tchaikovsky, and Kip Winger.

The Preview is a major pipeline for talented conductors and helps catalyze opportunities for their careers. Since 1995, the League’s Bruno Walter National Conductor Preview has showcased 85 conductors, with more than 50 orchestras engaging participants in conductor/music director appointments as a direct result. It is one of the field’s most prestigious and effective pathways for orchestra search committees to encounter new talent.


The Conductors:

Six dynamic conductors have been chosen by an independent panel of leading music professionals from a pool of nearly 150 applications from around the world. They were selected for their experience, talent, leadership potential, and commitment to a career in service to American orchestras.
