Music director Designate Fabio Luisi and the Dallas Symphony Orchestra have announced the appointment of Katharina Wincor as assistant conductor.
“Katharina had a command of the score, intense musicality and a strong podium presence that immediately caught the attention of the orchestra,” said music director designate Fabio Luisi. “I look forward to working with her in Dallas.”
Kim Noltemy, president and CEO of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra said, Wincor exemplifies artistic excellence.
“She instills in her work the same creative and inspirational vision of the DSO, and we are thrilled that she will be joining us in our future endeavors of creating the finest level of symphonic music in the world,” Noltemy said.
