Marin Alsop Appointed Chief Conductor & Curator of Chicago's Ravinia Festival

The Ravinia Festival has announced the appointment of conductor Marin Alsop as its new Chief Conductor and Curator

The Ravinia Festival, in Chicago, has this week announced the appointment of conductor Marin Alsop as its new Chief Conductor and Curator - effective from July 2020.

Marin will be the first person to hold the position since the festival's conception in 1936.

Her role will include conducting and curating of a series of concerts with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra - including a program celebrating women and the centennial of the 19th Amendment.

"Marin Alsop is a consummate musician, whose varied experience throughout the world – from São Paulo to California, from Baltimore to Vienna – is unsurpassed ..." Ravinia Festival President Welz Kauffmann has this week said.

"She gets everything that Ravinia is about ... the tradition, the unique audience, the eclectic mix of music, the atmosphere and environment, the El Sistema approach to music education, and our very insightful Ravinia family of volunteers, trustees and staff ... and she is unfazed by the vagaries of working out of doors," he has said.
