Gary Thor Wedow, an insightful conductor with irresistible musical zest, makes his company debut.
CONDUCTOR • Gary Thor Wedow GARY THOR WEDOW, conductor Gary Thor Wedow Conductor Gary Thor Wedow has been hailed for 'hot music making' by the Baltimore Sun and 'convincingly elegant period style' in Opera News. This season's highlights include Handel's Messiah (Alabama Symphony), Handel's Rinaldo (Portland Opera) and La Voix Humaine/Suor Angelica(Seattle Opera) this coming spring. A faculty member of The Juilliard School, he has led the Canadian Opera Company's Ensemble Studio, guest conducted at San Francisco Opera's Merola Opera Program and the Pittsburg Opera Center, and is a frequent visiting faculty member and conductor at Indiana University. He took up the baton once again at the Merola Opera Program this summer with Mozart's La Finta Giardinera, and looks forward to conducting Handel's Xerxes at Indiana University this winter.
Conductor Gary Thor Wedow has established an enviable reputation for dramatically exciting and historically informed performances with opera companies, festivals and choral organizations throughout North America.
He recently led the Seattle Symphony in a Baroque program of Rameau, Handel and Marcello to rave reviews and enthusiastic audience response and following his Rinaldo for the Berkshire Opera, the Boston Globe's Richard Dyer wrote: "The opera was delightfully played by a first-rate chamber orchestra under the direction Gary Thor Wedow. Years in opera houses have taught him how to make this music theatrical - and how to accommodate singers while challenging them. His work was knowledgeable, vital and full of the smell of candlelight and greasepaint." Wedow's 2010-2011 season includes productions of Die Zauberflöte for Seattle Opera, Handel's Agrippina for Boston Lyric Opera and an 'Opera Highlights Festival' with the Seattle Symphony. As well, he continues his relationship with the Juilliard School. As a pianist, Wedow studied with Jorge Bolet.
