On February 27, music director Carlos Miguel Prieto will lead the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra in its Carnegie Hall debut. Prieto will conduct the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra in a program centered around the music of Philip Glass and exotic locations, including the composer’s Days and Nights in Rocinha, inspired by Rio de Janiero’s lively Rocinha neighborhood and Mexican composer Silvestre Revueltas’s La noche de los Mayas, a symphonic suite from a 1939 film of the same name set during the Mayan Civilization and incorporating indigenous instruments.

Carnegie Hall presents the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra and Carlos Miguel Prieto as part of Carnegie Hall’s celebration of Philip Glass, the 2017-2018 Richard and Barbara Debs Composer’s Chair. A highly influential cultural leader, and the leading Mexican conductor of his generation, Carlos Miguel Prieto sees music and culture as powerful diplomatic tools to foster understanding, fellowship, and peace.
