„There’s no doubt that with Alondra de la Parra, classical music has arrived
into the XXI Century“
Alondra de la Parra has gained widespread attention for her spellbinding and vibrant performances and her commitment to Latin American composers. She has conducted over 100 of the world’s most prestigious orchestras including Orchestre de Paris, London Philharmonic Orchestra, Tonhalle-Orchester Zürich, Bamberg Symphony, Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra, São Paulo Symphony Orchestra, Berlin Radio Symphony Orchestra and Orchestra dell’Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia.
In 2017, she began her term as Music Director of the Queensland Symphony Orchestra, making her the first ever Music Director of an Australian orchestra. She is an official Cultural Ambassador of Mexico, where she saw platinum-level sales of her first album “Mi Alma Mexicana” and, in March 2017, was named brand ambassador for Mercedes-Benz Mexico. In July 2017, Deutsche Welle created ‘Musica Maestra’, a new classical format featuring Alondra de la Parra as both protagonist and reporter in a series of 26 web videos and six television shows.
In the 2018/19 season, she will return to the Elbphilharmonie Hamburg to make her debut with Hamburg Philharmonic State Orchestra, conduct the Berlin Radio Symphony Orchestra at Konzerthaus Berlin, open the season with Camerata Salzburg and join the London Philharmonic Orchestra for a UK tour, among other engagements.
A highlight of 2019 will be the world premiere of the new production T.H.A.M.O.S at Mozartwoche Salzburg, together with Camerata Salzburg and the theatre collective La Fura dels Baus around Carlus Padrissa as well as her debut at the Festival de Pâques in Aix-en-Provence.
Engagements of the last seasons include her subscription debut with the NHK Symphony, her debut at Beethovenfest Bonn, her celebrated return to Orchestre de Paris which was broadcasted live by German-French TV channel Arte, appearances with the Verbier Festival Orchestra, BBC Philharmonic, BBC National Orchestra of Wales and a live orchestral performance of the film ‘West Side Story’ at Mexico’s Auditorio Nacional and recently a series of performances of “The Winter’s Tale” at the Royal Opera House, where she will be returning soon.
