The Taki Concordia Conducting Fellowship in was founded by Marin Alsop in 2002 with the mission to promote, present, and encourage talented women conductors at the beginning of their professional careers.
It is our great pleasure to announce that Boston University’s very own Lina Gonzalez-Granados has been selected as the Taki Concordia Conducting Fellow for the 2017-2019 seasons. She is currently a DMA candidate studying orchestral conducting under Stefan Asbury.
Praised for her “geniality” and ability to create “lightning changes in tempo, meter and effect” (Boston Musical Intelligencer), Lina Gonzalez-Granados has firmly established herself locally and abroad as a diverse and talented conductor. She is the founder and Artistic Director of Unitas Ensemble, a dynamic chamber orchestra specializing in Latin-American repertoire, work which earned her recognition as one of the “Latino 30 Under 30” by El Mundo Newspaper in 2016. She recently recorded Unitas Ensemble’s debut album “The Seasons” alongside the Latin Grammy-winning Cuarteto Latinoamericano, to be released in late 2017.
