Fabio Mechetti, conductor

Born in São Paulo, Fabio Mechetti is the Music Director and Principal Conductor of the Minas Gerais Philharmonic since its creation in 2008. Recently, he became the first Brazilian invited to lead an Asian orchestra, being appointed Principal Conductor of the Malaysian Philharmonic. In the United States, Mechetti was Resident Conductor of the San Diego Symphony, Principal Conductor of the Syracuse Symphony, and is now Conductor Emeritus of the Spokane Symphony and the Jacksonville Symphony, after leading them for many seasons with great success. In Washington, he served as Associate Conductor for Mstislav Rostropovich in the National Symphony. With a solid career both in the USA and Brazil, Mechetti has already performed in Mexico, Peru, Venezuela, New Zealand, Spain, Japan, Scotland, Finland, Canada, Sweden, and Italy. He is also a winner of the Malko Competition and holds Master’s degrees in conducting and composition from the Juilliard School of Music.

Ronaldo Rolim is a prominent figure among the newest generation of Brazilian pianists. As guest soloist, he performed with orchestras such as the St. Petersburg State Capella Symphony Orchestra, Tonhalle-Orchester Zürich, Musikkollegium Winterthur, Concerto Budapest, Phoenix Symphony and the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra. A passionate advocate of chamber music, Rolim is a founding member of Trio Appassionata, formed with violinist Lydia Chernicoff and cellist Andrea Casarrubios. At 18, after winning Nelson Freire and Magda Tagliaferro competitions in Brazil, the pianist moved to the USA to finish his music studies. Rolim recently obtained his PhD at Yale Univeristy with a work based on programmatic pieces by Karol Szymanowski, which will inspire a recording project scheduled to 2018.
