“To mentor is to touch a life forever. I think of guest conductor Gerard Schwarz as a musical father, and he touched my life as a musician and a person when I worked as his Assistant Conductor at the Seattle Symphony.  An impressive international conductor with over 350 recordings to his name, I was mesmerized when I saw him conduct Strauss’ Der Rosenkavalier.  It is as if Strauss is in his blood, and I remember thinking I didn’t know music could be this exquisitePhilip Glass’ Violin Concerto No.1, featuring HSO’s Leonid Sigal, was composed for Glass’ late father.  It brought Glass tremendous international fame, just as Hansel and Gretel and Der Rosenkavalier brought Humperdinck and Strauss their greatest popular success.” – Carolyn Kuan, Music Director
