The selection of the Amarillo Symphony’s 18th music director to succeed the outgoing Maestro, Jacomo Bairos, will take place before live audiences, as 3 finalists audition for the position by conducting the orchestra through a series of concerts. The “Audition Season” is set to commence January 2022 and conclude June 2022.
This is the first time in 8 years that the Amarillo Symphony has conducted a music director search. The multiyear, international search has been going on since early 2020, under the guidance of a search committee, which is made up of orchestra musicians, board members, and community members. The committee received over 300 applications for the position and has carefully reduced the applicants to 3 incredibly talented finalists.
The finalists for the 18th conductorship of the Amarillo Symphony will be announced in fall 2021.View all Artists
