An event of a lifetime: Our own Henry Shin is off to an esteemed international conducting competition.

By July 10, 2015News

With us since 2002 Mr. Shin, a Musical Director for SFArtsED Players, is in France to compete at the International Competition for Young Conductors in Besançon. It’s perhaps the most prestigious of all conducting competitions — Seiji Ozawa and Lorin Maazel are winners from years past — and it closely equates to the Van Cliburn Competition for pianists. In all, 20 will compete for a Grand Prize and guest conducting opportunities all throughout Europe. We’re enormously proud of the caliber of talent at SFArtsED that Mr. Shin represents and we wish him all success. For more information, go to http://www.festival-besancon.com/index.php/concours/1
