Oh, the Places You’ll Go…

The culmination of decades-long artistry and mentorship, The Maestro and His Maestro showcases the synergy between Maestros Lawrence Golan and Robert Spano as they spearhead an inspiring performance that charts the generations. Conductors from the DPO’s 4th Annual International Conducting Workshop will trade off movements within a program which spans musical eras and genres, competing for a chance to return and conduct the orchestra at a future DPO concert in 2024-25.

Maestro and his Maestro is a celebration of mentorship and learning, a testament to the dedication of emerging conductors honing their craft, and a celebration of the harmonious partnership between the maestro and his mentor. Join us and witness the journey of artistic growth live in motion!
