Guerrero took the position during the 2009-2010 season and has helped lead the group through difficult times, including the COVID-19 pandemic. Under his leadership, the Nashville Symphony has commissioned and premiered over a dozen new works, including collaborations with artists like Ben Folds and Bela Fleck, among others. During his tenure the orchestra has also been awarded 11 Grammys for live-recorded commercial albums.
The symphony says Guerrero will step down at the conclusion of the 2024-25 season and will then spend two years as music director laureate.
A committee comprised of the board of directors, musicians, administrative, and volunteer leadership will search for a successor.
This summer Guerrero will conduct in Poland, New York, Australia, Costa Rica, and Brazil.
