The Amarillo Symphony, announced that due to a family illness music director and conductor Jacomo Rafael Bairos

will not be conducting the Intimate Evening concerts. Guest conductor Yaniv Dinur will lead the orchestra for the

concerts on Jan. 24 and 25 at the Globe-News Center for the Performing Arts.

Considered “a passionate and insightful musician,” by Michael Tilson Thomas – the music director of the

San Francisco Symphony and artistic director of the New World Symphony Orchestra, Dinur began

his conducting career at the age of 19 when he was invited to perform with the Israel Camerata

Orchestra in Jerusalem, making him the youngest conductor ever invited to conduct an orchestra in

Israel. Deemed a “marvelous conductor” by mentor Kurt Masur, Dinur is also a passionate lecturer

and music educator and currently serves as director of orchestral activities at American University in

Washington DC.

“Thanks to the Amarillo Symphony’s national reputation, we were able to secure an astounding

conductor on short notice,” said Susan White, executive director of the Amarillo Symphony. “The

audience is in for a great treat as we prepare for Intimate Evening with this dynamic young conductor.”

Intimate Evening will be held at the Globe-News Center for the Performing Arts on Friday, January 24 and

Saturday, January 25 at 8:00 pm. For more information about Intimate Evening or to purchase tickets,

The campaign to increase the accessibility of the Amarillo Symphony by decreasing ticket prices
