Lina Gonzalez-Granados, guest conductor

Praised for her “attention to orchestral colors” (OperaWire) and ability to create “lightning changes in tempo, meter and effect” (Boston Musical Intelligencer), Lina Gonzalez-Granados has firmly established herself locally and abroad as a talented conductor of opera, classical, and contemporary music. Currently, Lina is the 2017-19 Taki Concordia Fellow, a position created by Maestro Marin Alsop to foster the entrepreneurship and talent of female conductors. Starting in the fall of 2019, she will begin her new appointment as Conducting Fellow of the Seattle Symphony and the Philadelphia Orchestra.

Recent Guest appearances have included Tulsa Opera where Lina made history by being the first Latina conductor to lead a major production in a U.S. Opera House, as well as the Orquesta Sinfónica Nacional de Colombia, and the Filarmonica de Medellin.

In 2019 Lina was named one of five finalists selected for the 2019 Sir Georg Solti International Conducting Competition in Chicago. She was also selected for the 2019 Tanglewood Conducting Seminar, working with Maestro Stefan Asbury. She participated in the Linda and Mitch Hart Institute for Conductors at the Dallas Opera, making her the first Hispanic conductor selected for that role.

In 2014, she founded Unitas Ensemble, a Boston-based chamber orchestra specializing in Latin American music. Her work with Unitas Ensemble has yielded multiple World, North American, and American premieres, as well as the creation and release of the Unitas Ensemble album “Estaciones”.

Lina is born and raised in Cali, Colombia. She earned her Master’s Degree in Conducting and a Graduate Diploma in Choral Conducting from New England Conservatory, and is pursuing her Doctoral degree in Orchestral Conducting at Boston University. Her principal mentors include Bernard Haitink, Bramwell Tovey, Stefan Asbury, and Marin Alsop.

AGE RESTRICTIONS: The Stamford Symphony encourages the attendance of young people at its concerts. However, orchestral performances are probably not suitable for children aged under 5. We welcome children of any age to our special family-oriented shorter performances, however, they must have a ticket.
