The Tacoma-based Northwest Sinfonietta chamber orchestra has just announced that Gerard Schwarz, outgoing artistic director of the Seattle Symphony, will be guest conductor for a gala season finale in June, 2012. On the program is the Dohnányi Concert Piece for cello and orchestra, with Schwarz‘ son Julian as soloist.
“It is an immense privilege to bring a musician of Maestro Schwarz’ stature to our stage,” said artistic director Christophe Chagnard. “Taking on the reins of the Northwest Sinfonietta for our season finale is the greatest compliment he could pay us.”
