The Brazilian Ligia Amadio has been named artistic director of the Montevideo Philharmonic from next year.

In 2014 she was named chief conductor in Bogota, Colombia.

    This news about Ligia Amadio being at present Chief Conductor in Bogota, Colombia is a big lie!!

    She was fired by Orquesta filarmonica de Bogota since the end of 2014, that means it has been almost 2 years ago! You can check directly with Sandra Meluk, present Director General of the orchestra or with David Garcia, her predecessor.
