The Detroit Symphony Orchestra is proud to announce that Michelle Merrill has been promoted to Associate Conductor ahead of her third season with the DSO.
“In promoting Michelle from Assistant to Associate Conductor of the DSO, we are acknowledging her incredible contribution to our orchestra,” said Music Director Leonard Slatkin. “Whether she is engaging with children at our Young People’s Family Concerts, leading pops and classical programs, hosting our Live from Orchestra Hall webcasts, or providing support to our guest conductors, all of her work is exemplary. The orchestra admires her greatly, and I am proud that she will continue to work alongside me—on the podium and in the community—as our Associate Conductor.”
