Debuts with Italy's Orchestra Sinfonica di Sanremo & Maui Pops, & return to the Tucson Symphony part of conductor Lawrence Golan's 2018-19 season

September 13, 2018 | By Grant Communications
American Conductor Lawrence Golan's 2018-19 diverse season reflects his reputation as an imaginative programmer and dynamic, charismatic communicator, both on and off the podium. He divides the 2018-19 season between pops and classical engagements mainly across the United States, along with some international guesting. Celebrating his fifth season at the helm of the York Symphony Orchestra this season, he is also Music Director of Washington's Yakima Symphony Orchestra and the Denver Philharmonic as well. Guesting takes him to Arizona, Hawaii and Italy, and to Austria in summer 2019.
Acclaimed for his vibrant, inspired performances, and evocative command of different styles and composers, Lawrence Golan has conducted throughout the United States and in Bulgaria, Canada, China, Czech Republic, El Salvador, England, Georgia, Germany, Italy, Mexico, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia, South Korea, Taiwan, Ukraine and Uzbekistan, and continues to develop relationships with orchestras nationally and abroad.
In addition to concerts with the orchestras of which he is Music Director, Golan's 2018-19 season includes return engagements with the Tucson Symphony Orchestra (for performances of The Nutcracker with Tucson Regional Ballet Company), his debut with Italy's Orchestra Sinfonica di Sanremo and Maui Pops Orchestra, and leading a summer 2019 production of Mozart's Le Nozze di Figaro at the Europäisches Musikinstitut Wien. 2018 summer performances included the Yakima Symphony Orchestra's new concert series at Cave B Summer Music Theater in Quincy, Washington and a sold-out concert with the Bayerische Philharmonie in Munich, Germany.
Recent season highlights included guest conducting debuts with Germany's Bayerische Philharmonie, Mexico's Orquesta de Cámara de Bellas Artes, China's Wuhan Philharmonic and the music festivals of Colorado and Batumi (Georgia, Eastern Europe); a 14-city tour of China with the Denver Philharmonic, and return engagements with Italy's Orchestra Sinfonica Città di Grosseto, Tucson Symphony Orchestra and Portland Ballet Company. Golan is also Music Director of Colorado's Lamont Symphony Orchestra and Opera Theatre at the University of Denver.
Mr. Golan records for Albany Records. His latest release is the 2018 world premiere Blu-ray disc and audio CD of composer Jiaojiao Zhou's theatrical symphonic poem Ode to Nature with the Lamont Symphony Orchestra and producer Dennis Law. He has recorded three CDs with the Moravian Philharmonic: "Tchaikovsky 6 & Tchaikovsky 6.1" featuring the composer's Symphony No. 6 and the recording premiere of Tchaikovsky 6.1 by Peter Boyer (commissioned by Golan); "Funky Little Crustaceans" featuring orchestral music by composer William Hill; and "Visions, Dreams & Memories" featuring flutist James Pellerite.
