The Los Angeles Philharmonic has today announced the promotion of Lithuanian conductor Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla from Assistant to Associate Conductor.

Having commenced with the Phil in the 2012-13 season as a Dudamel Conducting Fellow, Mirga’s new position will bring additional responsibilities – plus see her continue to serve as the orchestra’s cover conductor.

“The Philharmonic has afforded me tremendous growth, both personally and professionally … I’m very grateful to build upon this invaluable experience and continue on this journey,” the 29 year old has said.

A graduate of the Zurich Conservatory, the Mendelssohn Conservatory and the Bologna Conservatory, Mirga will also next season commence her appointment as Music Director of the Salzburg Landestheater.
