Maestro move: Miguel takes Rice

The Peru-born conductor Miguel Harth-Bedoya, former chief of Fort Worth Symphony (2002-2020) and Norwegian Radio (2013-2020),is to be Director of Orchestras and Professor of Conducting at Shepherd School, Rice University.

The post has been vacant since Larry Racleff’s death in 2022. ‘Under Miguel’s direction, we anticipate an era of transformative orchestral experiences for our students,’ said Dean Matthew Loden.

‘Rice is not only training musicians; it is shaping the future of orchestral leadership,’ said Rice Provost Amy Dittmar.

Harth-Bedoya said: ‘Throughout my career, I’ve championed the development of the next generation of musical talent. The chance to do that at such a renowned institution is truly exciting. Together, we’ll inspire and challenge each other to excel and create unique and transformative opportunities to prepare musicians for the 21st century.
