Nashville Symphony music director Giancarlo Guerrero has been named music director of the Wrocław Philharmonic in Poland, and will begin his tenure there on a part-time basis beginning with the upcoming 2017/18 season. A five-time Grammy winner, Guerrero will continue to serve as the Nashville Symphony’s music director as well, a post he’s held since 2009 and has committed to through the 2024-25 season.
Guerrero will conduct four weeks during his first season in Wroclaw and will then spend eight weeks per season with the orchestra, in addition to touring and recording activities, beginning in 2018.
“Wrocław takes great pride in its orchestra, and the new hall reflects the vibrant community around it, revitalizing the city in a way that is reminiscent of what Schermerhorn Symphony Center helped to do for downtown Nashville when it opened 10 years ago,” Guerrero said. “As with my first encounters with the Nashville Symphony, I felt a connection with the musicians of the Wrocław Philharmonic from the moment I started working with them, when I came to fill a last-minute cancelation in October 2016. My initial impressions of the musicians, the quality of the new hall and this lively city were confirmed when I returned in December.”
