The LSO is pleased to announce that Chelsea Gallo has been named our music director for the 2017-2018 season. Like her immediate predecessor Roberto Kalb, she will hold the title of Gilbert S. Omenn, M.D. Music Director , in honor of a generous gift from former U-M Executive Vice President for Medical Affairs Gilbert Omenn and his wife Martha Darling.
A student in U-M’s noted orchestral conducting program, she is pursuing her doctorate with Prof. Kenneth Kiesler. She also serves as music director for the Cosmos Chamber Orchestra, which like the LSO works to bring the worlds of music and science closer together.
Welcome, Chelsea! And many thanks to Dr. Omenn and Ms. Darling for their continued support of our music director position.
