In his debut as Frost’s new conductor of the Frost Symphony Orchestra, Gerard Schwarz offers a varied and demanding program. It includes the suite from the ballet Estancia by Alberto Ginastera, one of the greatest 20th century composers of the Americas; Samuel Jones’s Tuba Concerto, which Schwarz has called “the finest solo work for that instrument ever produced,” featuring Frost faculty tubist Aaron Tindall; and the evening closes with Brahms’s magnificent and melodic Symphony No. 2.

In his nearly five decades as an internationally renowned classical musician and conductor Gerard Schwarz has received hundreds of honors including six Emmy Awards, 14 GRAMMY nominations, eight ASCAP Awards and numerous Stereo Review and Ovation Awards. His move to South Florida, along with being named the new music director of the Palm Beach Symphony is a quantum leap in the growth of the Magic City being considered as one of the arts capitals of the world.
