CONDUCTOR | EDUCATOR
Argentinian conductor Alex Amsel has quickly established himself as a conductor equally at home with orchestral and operatic repertoire, and as a music educator for students of all ages. After a successful 2-year tenure as the Conducting Fellow and following an international search, Amsel has been appointed Assistant Conductor of the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra by Robert Spano where he will lead the orchestra in a variety of concerts including Symphonic, Pops, Chamber and Education programs. Amsel was also selected for the prestigious Aspen Conducting Academy for the 2020 and 2021 summers where he worked closely with Robert Spano. In high demand for summer seasons as both a conductor and educator, Amsel has performed with orchestras at Aspen Music Festival, National Repertory Orchestra, Round Top Music Festival, and Philadelphia International Music Festival. As Assistant Conductor for the National Repertory Orchestra in Breckenridge, Colorado, Amsel led the orchestra in multiple subscription concerts and young artist competition performances. Other recent engagements include Assistant Conductor and Choir Master for the Peabody Conservatory Symphonies, Opera Theatre, and Concert Choirs, as well as Faculty Conductor for the Philadelphia International Music Festival. Amsel holds a Masters of Music in Orchestral Conducting from the Peabody Conservatory, studying under the tutelage of Marin Alsop.
Amsel’s hope is to integrate music into the fabric of every community he works with to reshape how we think about society and our place in it.
During his free time, Amsel is a biking, architecture, wine, and Golden Retriever aficionado.
