Maazel to Munich: confirmed

The rumors are true: Lorin Maazel is to become chief conductor of the Munich Philharmonic. Ionarts has the details, and a thoughtful appraisal.

Maazel's Facebook page confirms it: "I consider the Music Directorship of the Munich Philharmonic to be one of the most prestigious positions today in the world of classical music. The quality of the orchestra is superlative and its remarkable history of collaboration with the finest of interpreters such as Maestro Celibidache represents a challenge I shall attempt to meet. - LM"

Hi, before you head out to gaze at the cherry blossoms this weekend, you might want to take your family or some friends to a free concert of the Stanford University (California) Chamber Chorale, which will be performing this Saturday March 27 at 1 PM in the beautiful new Sir Norman Foster-designed Kogod Courtyard Atrium of the Smithsonian’s American Art Museum/National Portrait Gallery.

Admission to the National Museum is free.

Directed by Stephen M. Sano, the 24 student group from Stanford's music department will perform works from British, American, folk, and spiritual traditions.

No tickets or registration required; seating (!!) available on a first-come, first-served basis.

The students and director will be attempting to meet the challenge before them!

Smithsonian American Art Museum | 8th and F Streets NW Washington DC 20004 | (202) 633-1000
