By David Salazar

Marlon Daniel has been appointed to the position of Associate Conductor of the Florida Grand Opera.

Daniel will act as cover conductor for the upcoming 2022 season productions as well as a resident conductor on other projects throughout the year.

“I have always dreamed of a career in music that followed in the footsteps of some of my favorite conductors such as Claudio Abbado, Herbert von Karajan and Carlos Kleiber, who were equally comfortable in the pit as well as on the podium,” Daniel said in an officials statement. “This new position gives me a real opportunity to gain even greater experience in full opera productions in addition to my symphonic conducting. I thank General Director and CEO Susan T. Danis and all of Florida Grand Opera for putting their faith in me at this time in my life.”

Daniel is a renowned conductor who founded the Festival International de Musique Saint-Georges and was also the first conductor to lead a performance of the composer’s long-lost opera “L’Amant Anonyme” in over 230 years.
