    Excellent news. A very talented young man.

    Of course he meets the Dudamel Hairstyle requirements as well.

      Thanks! I thought it was one of our budding women conductors.

    2. John Borstlap says:

      The best conductors are bald (Erich Kleiber, Bernard Haitink, Sir Adrian Bald, Jaap van Zweden, Roberto Zaltran-Zavala, Joseph Young, Christoph Eschenbach, Paavo Järvi). Much hair intervenes with the patters of acoustical projection; therefore the ladies are at a disadvantage.

  3. John Borstlap says:

    Another example of typical European-born young people from second or third generation immigrants who are deeply rooted in Western culture, refuting the rightwingers on their anti-assimilation point.

        Sally says you’re right. I may have to fire her.
