Congratulations to Jonathon Heyward

The news that 29-year-old Jonathon Heyward has been named Baltimore Symphony’s new music director is most welcome. His tenure will start at the beginning of the 2023-24 season and is for an initial five-year term.

I noted last year that this is an artist who would go far. When I reviewed his Seattle Symphony debut in June 2019, I wrote that “the chemistry between them produced such subtle and winning results that it defies belief they haven’t been regular collaborators for years.”

The only downside is that this development puts him out of the running for Seattle Symphony as it embarks on its search for a new music director.

Heartiest congratulations to Jonathon!
