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.
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.
