Music Director finalist Alondra de la Parra’s Message to Orlando

In September, the Orlando Philharmonic welcomed Alondra de la Parra–first of five finalists in the orchestra’s  international Music Director search–for a week-long visit to Orlando. Over the week, Maestro de la Parra met with musicians, arts leaders, community members, staff, board and volunteers, presented an informance about Mahler’s first symphony, and led rehearsals in preparation for opening night of the 2014-2015 season. Upon returning to Mexico City, she sent her thanks and best wishes.
