25th October 2023

We are very happy to welcome conductor Giancarlo Guerrero to our management agency.

Music Director of the Nashville Symphony and a six-time GRAMMY® Award-winning conductor Guerrero has appeared in recent seasons with prominent North American orchestras, including the New York Philharmonic, Chicago Symphony, National Symphony Orchestra, San Francisco Symphony, and those of Boston, Baltimore, Cleveland, Cincinnati, Dallas, Detroit, Indianapolis, Los Angeles, Milwaukee, Montréal, Philadelphia, Seattle, Toronto, Vancouver, and Houston.  In Europe he has worked with the Deutches Symphonie Orchester Berlin, Frankfurt Radio Symphony, London Philharmonic, Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France, Netherlands Philharmonic, NDR Radiophilharmonie, Deutsches Radio Philharmonie and Orquesta Sinfónica de Galicia, and in Australia he has been invited to work with  Sydney Symphony and Queensland Symphony

In the 2023-24 season, Guerrero returns to conduct the Chicago Symphony Orchestra in their joint concert with Wynton Marsalis and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra. He also returns to the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra, Brussels Philharmonic, Gulbenkian Orchestra, Orquesta Sinfónica de Bilbao, and Civic Orchestra of Chicago and will make his debut with Orquesta Sinfónica del Principado de Asturias 

Guerrero recently completed a six-season tenure as Music Director of the NFM Wrocław Philharmonic and previously held posts as the Principal Guest Conductor of both The Cleveland Orchestra Miami Residency and the Gulbenkian Symphony, Music Director of the Eugene Symphony, and Associate Conductor of the Minnesota Orchestra.

Through commissions, recordings, and world premieres, Guerrero has championed the works of prominent American composers. He has led the Nashville Symphony in eleven world premieres and fifteen recordings of American music, including works by Michael Daugherty, Terry Riley and Jonathan Leshnoff, and most recently the GRAMMY® nominated recording of John Adams: My Father Knew Charles Ives & Harmonielehre. As part of his commitment to fostering the work of contemporary composers, Guerrero, together with composer Aaron Jay Kernis, guided the creation of Nashville Symphony’s biannual Composer Lab & Workshop for young and emerging composers.

Born in Nicaragua, Guerrero immigrated during his childhood to Costa Rica, where he joined the local youth symphony. He studied percussion and conducting at Baylor University in Texas and earned his master’s degree in conducting at Northwestern.

Given his beginnings in civic youth orchestras, Guerrero is particularly engaged with conducting training orchestras and has worked with the Curtis School of Music, Colburn School in Los Angeles, National Youth Orchestra (NYO2) and Yale Philharmonia, as well as with the Nashville Symphony’s Accelerando program, which provides an intensive music education to promising young students from diverse ethnic backgrounds.

Giancarlo Guerrero will be represented for Spain and Portugal by Mònica Royuela in Ibermúsica Artists.

Welcome on board!
