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. Hailed for 'hot music making' by the Baltimore Sun and 'convincingly elegant period style' in Opera News, some of his most recent successes include Gluck's Orphée and Die Zauberflöte for the Seattle Opera, Le donne curiose for Wolf Trap Opera and Agrippina for Boston Lyric Opera. Maestro Wedow has been closely associated with New York City Opera for many years; most recently he led their Don Giovanni in the Christopher Alden production and last May conducted the New York premiere of Telemann's Orpheus. He was in Wisconsin for Madison Opera's 'Opera in the Park' and recently conducted the Berkshire Choral Society in Salzburg and Mondsee. Highlights of his 2012-2013 season include La finta giardiniera for the San Francisco Opera's Merola Program, Xerxes for Indiana University, Rinaldo for Portland Opera with the Portland Baroque Orchestra, Die Fledermaus for Virginia Opera, Messiah for the Alabama Symphony and a return to Seattle Opera for a double bill of La voix humaine and Suor Angelica.
...
Wedow has been a frequent guest of Florida Grand Opera, Canadian Opera Company, Glimmerglass Opera, Berkshire Opera, Chautauqua Opera, Amherst Early Music Festival and Pittsburgh Opera among others.
...
As a pianist, Wedow studied with virtuoso Jorge Bolet.

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.
