The Kalamazoo Symphony is looking for a music director to replace the long-serving Raymond Harvey in June 2018.
A shortlist has been drawn up. All five candidates are music directors elsewhere, looking for an upgrade.
Donato Cabrera, m.d. at Las Vegas Philharmonic Orchestra since 2014 and the California Symphony since 2013.
Edwin Outwater, outgoing m.d. at Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony.
Andrew Grams, m.d. at Elgin Symphony Orchestra.
Stilian Kirov, newly appointed m.d. at Illinois Philharmonic.
And Julian Kuerti, principal conductor of the Orquesta Sinfónica de Concepción in Chile.
Looks like Kalamazoo is quite a catch.
