The Venezuelan-born, Spanish conductor José Luis Gomez was catapulted to international attention when he won First Prize at the Sir Georg Solti International Conductors’ Competition in Frankfurt in September 2010, securing a sensational and rare unanimous decision from the jury. Gomez started his musical career as a violinist, and by the age of 11 he was Concertmaster of the Youth Orchestra of Zulia State, part of El Sistema de Orquestas Juveniles de Venezuela. He graduated in music and violin from the Manhattan School of Music before embarking on a European orchestral career. The 16/17 season saw Gomez named Music Director of the Tucson Symphony Orchestra. In 17/18, with the Tucson Symphony, Gomez has conducted concerts with Yo-Yo Ma, Arturo Sandoval, and Gil Shaham, and two programs with the Tucson Desert Song Festival observing the 100th anniversary of Leonard Bernstein’s birth.
