It has been announced today that Peruvian conductor Miguel Harth-Bedoya will step down as Music Director of the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra - at the conclusion of the 2019-20 season.

The 49-year-old has served the leadership position since 2000 - but will return to conduct the ensemble with the title of Conductor Laureate.

"I believe that after a tenure of 20 seasons, it will be the right time for the orchestra to close a chapter and to begin a new one … exploring new challenges, points of view, opportunities and ideas,” Maestro Harth-Bedoya has said.

A graduate of the Curtis Institute of Music and The Juilliard School, he is a former Assistant Conductor with the Los Angeles Philharmonic - and currently serves as Chief Conductor of the Norwegian Radio Orchestra.
