One of todayâs preeminent conductors, James Conlon, music director of L.A. Opera, has cultivated a vast symphonic, operatic and choral repertoire, and developed enduring relationships with the worldâs most prestigious symphony orchestras and opera houses. He will lead a discussion from the podium and perform selected works with the USC Thornton Symphony.
Since his New York Philharmonic debut in 1974, Conlon has appeared as a guest conductor with virtually every major North American and European orchestra and has frequently been a guest conductor at the Metropolitan Opera. In addition to serving as the music director of L.A. Opera, he is the music director of the Ravinia Festival, the summer home of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, and the Cincinnati May Festival. In 2009, Conlon won two Grammy Awards (Best Classical Recording and Best Opera Album) for conducting L.A. Operaâs production of Kurt Weillâs Rise and Fall of the City of Mahagonny.
Organized by the USC Thornton School of Music.
