Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla – more success for young conductor


Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla, Lithuanian winner of the 2012 Salzburg young conductors contest, has been promoted to Associate Conductor of the LA Phil, extending her tenure until 2018. Gražinytė-Tyla, 29, was appointed a Dudamel Conducting Fellow in 2012 and has gone from strength to strength. She will make her second appearance at the Hollywood Bowl on Thursday, conducting Bernstein and Bizet.


Dudamel says: ‘Mirga is an impressive talent, which is immediately evident to anyone that works with her or sees her conduct. We were very excited to have her join the LA Phil family as Assistant Conductor following her participation in our conducting fellowship program, and now we feel even more fortunate that she will continue with us in the role of Associate Conductor.’
