Gerard Schwarz conducts the Palm Beach Symphony and teaches at the University of Miami. He is likely best-known for his singular tenure of 26 years at the Seattle Symphony, where he brought that ensemble into the company of elite orchestras. His post-trumpet conducting career began with contemporary American music, and he has been an advocate for U.S. composers for all of his career, in particular the music of David Diamond. Greg Stepanich of Palm Beach ArtsPaper talks to Schwarz about his work past and present, and about American classical music in general.
Free admission, registration recommended.
