(additional orchestral finalists to be announced later this week.)
The American Prize is pleased to announce that all five professional orchestras selected for the semi-finals, and their conductor applicants, have been advanced to the final round of The American Prize spring 2010 competitions in orchestral performance and orchestral conducting. “The quality of each of the applicants in the semi-finals in the professional category was so high that it felt right to move them all into the final round for further consideration,” said chief judge David Katz.
In no order, the orchestras and conductors are below.
