Seattle Symphony Conducting Fellow Lina González-Granados takes the podium as the Symphony performs a special concert with Concertmaster Noah Geller as soloist. Breaking from tradition, this mystery program will not be announced in advance. Audiences will discover each piece as it is performed over the course of the live broadcast. With a musical journey blending both old and new repertoire, this program aims to inspire hope and healing for audiences everywhere.
Praised for her "attention to orchestral colors" (OperaWire) and ability to create "lightning changes in tempo, meter and effect" (Boston Musical Intelligencer), Lina González-Granados has firmly established herself locally and abroad as a talented conductor of opera, classical, and contemporary music.
Noah Geller comes to Seattle from the Kansas City Symphony, where he was Concertmaster since 2012. Prior to this, he held posts in The Philadelphia Orchestra as a first violin section member and later as Acting Assistant Concertmaster. He attended The Juilliard School for both his Bachelor and Master of Music degrees and has also performed with many chamber and festival organizations around the U.S. including the Marlboro Music Festival, Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, Tanglewood Music Center, and here in the Pacific Northwest at the Olympic Music Festival in Port Townsend, Washington.
Led by Music Director Thomas Dausgaard, the Seattle Symphony unleashes the power of music, brings people together and lifts the human spirit. Recognized as one of the “most vital American orchestras” (NPR), the Seattle Symphony is internationally acclaimed for its inventive programming, community-minded initiatives and superb recordings on the Seattle Symphony Media label.
