We are excited and pleased to welcome Laura Jackson—now in her seventh season as music director of the Reno Philharmonic—as our guest conductor for Past Meets Present Meets Future–Classics IV this weekend (August 1st and 2nd.) She will lead the Wintergreen Festival Orchestra in presenting the music of composers Kabalevsky, Beethoven, and Daron Hagen.
Laura Jackson guest conducts nationally and internationally. In 2013 she became the first American to lead the Algerian National Orchestra. Other recent engagements include L’Orchestre de Bretagne in France and the Philippine Philharmonic Orchestra.
In addition, she recorded Michael Daugherty’s Time Cycle on Naxos with the Bournemouth Symphony in partnership with Marin Alsop. In North America, she has performed with the symphonies of Alabama, Atlanta, Baltimore, Berkeley, Detroit, Phoenix, San Antonio, Toledo, Toronto, Windsor, and Winnipeg, among others. We're pleased to have her now add Wintergreen Performing Arts to this list of performances.
