Music Director Giancarlo Guerrero Of The Nashville Symphony Orchestra

“It is our duty as an American orchestra, in a city that proudly calls itself ‘Music City,’ to champion great American music."

Giancarlo Guerrero, music director of the GRAMMY-winning Nashville Symphony Orchestra, sat down with GRAMMY Pro moments before taking over hosting duties at the Nashville Chapter’s GRAMMY Block Party. Guerrero, a champion of contemporary American composers, has taken his passion for new music and brought it to the Nashville Symphony Orchestra’s catalog, often juxtaposing the new with the classical “warhorses.” The GRAMMY-winner explains his role as music director and conductor, reveals his ever-changing favorite piece, and shared his pride for the Nashville music community.
