Classical Notes

Courtney and The Dude

Posted at 1:48 PM on July 12, 2011 by John Birge

Courtney Lewis, associate conductor of the Minnesota Orchestra, has been chosen by the Los Angeles Philharmonic for its Dudamel Fellowship Program.
Lewis will spend about a month working alongside Gustavo Dudamel, the Music Director of the LA Phil. Lewis will continue his activites with the Minnesota Orchestra as well.

When Courtney Lewis arrived in Minnesota in 2009, I talked to him about his new job here, and his plans for the future. You can listen to our conversation and see video here.
