Mindful of its very limited contract with the new music director, Andris Nelsons - just 8-10 weeks a year – the Boston Symphony Orchestra has signed on its Brazilian assistant conductor, Marcelo Lehninger, for two more years.
(You never know when you’re going to need a Brazilian.)
press release: After three successful seasons as BSO’s Assistant Conductor, Marcelo Lehninger renewed his contract for two more seasons as the
Orchestra’s new Associate Conductor – a position created specifically for him. Maestro Lehninger was appointed by James Levine and conducted the orchestra in several occasions at Symphony Hall, Tanglewood and Carnegie Hall.
