Miguel Harth-Bedoya to step in as Guest Conductor with the North Carolina Symphony

Miguel Harth-Bedoya is pleased to step in as guest conductor for three performances with the North Carolina Symphony on November 15, 16, & 17, 2018. In addition to Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 6 “Pathétique” and Elgar’s Enigma Variations, Harth-Bedoya will lead pianist Michelle Cann in performances of Florence Price’s Piano Concerto, a work infused with the influence of her African American roots.  A musical pioneer, Price was one of the first African-American students to graduate from the New England Conservatory of Music, the first African-American woman to have a symphonic work performed by a major American orchestra, and the first winner of the composition contest sponsored by the progressive Wanamaker Foundation.
