The Corpus Christi Symphony Orchestra is having tryouts over the next several months to find a new conductor. Executive Director Lynn Haueter's very special guest, Aram Demirjian is one of five candidates up for the title.
Saturday, Oct. 8th at 7:30pm, guests will settle in to their favorite seats at the Texas A&M Corpus Christi Performing Arts Center to watch and listen to the man who may become Corpus Christi's next Maestro.
Demirjian is one from a list of 144 conductor applicants from all over the world and is one of the youngest American conductors. Demirjian's bio describes him as, the musical traditions of the past with the cultural appetites of the present, forging a magnetic rapport with audience members and creating inspiring musical experiences in both familiar and progressive concert formats."
The Symphony Conductor Search Committee led by retired CCISD Superintendent, Scott Elliff, is about to enjoy their almost two year laborious process. "Careful detail and protocols were followed throughout the search," said Elliff, "We utilized an excellent resource from the League of American Orchestras (LAO) which guided us step by step." Elliff emphasized that concert goers and musicians will have the opportunity to fill out a survey for each concert. These surveys will be compiled and the new Maestro will be chosen at the end of the 2016-17 Season.
