CHICAGO — The Chicago Symphony Orchestra Association (CSOA) is pleased to announce that Lina González-Granados will continue in her role as the Sir Georg Solti Conducting Apprentice, with two residencies planned next season in May and June 2023. The jury of the CSOA’s International Sir Georg Solti Conducting Competition, presided over by CSO Music Director and Jury Chair Riccardo Muti selected González-Granados as the fourth Solti Conducting Apprentice in fall of 2019. She began as Apprentice in February 2020, paused her engagement during the first several months of the pandemic, and resumed in fall of 2021. Upon her return to the CSOA next season, she will continue to be mentored by Muti, observe CSO rehearsals and concerts, and participate in education and community engagement activities and performances supported by the Negaunee Music Institute at the CSO.
