Andrés Orozco-Estrada Ends Tenure with Houston Symphony with Mahler’s Second Symphony

By Francisco Salazar

Andrés Orozco-Estrada has chosen to end his eight-year tenure as Houston Symphony Music Director.

The conductor will conclude his tenure with Mahler’s Symphony No. 2, “Resurrection” on April 29, 30, and May 1, 2022.

The farewell concerts will take place in Jones Hall, and the Saturday night performance will be livestreamed.

For the symphony, which requires the full complement of the orchestra, as well as two vocal soloists, and a large onstage chorus, Orozco-Estrada will be joined by soprano Ana María Martínez and mezzo-soprano Kelley O’Connor.

Orozco-Estrada is currently the Music Director of the Wiener Symphoniker, Principal Conductor of the Filarmónica Joven de Colombia, and Principal Conductor of the Orquesta Sinfónica Freixenet de la Escuela Superior de Música Reina Sofía.
