Nashville Symphony Contract Extension Keeps Guerrero In Place Until 2025

Giancarlo Guerrero will stay with the Nashville Symphony for nearly another decade, at least. The music director has agreed to a five-year extension of his existing contract.

The new deal sets him up to become one of the longest-serving conductors in the ensemble's history, second only to Kenneth Schermerhorn, who took over the orchestra in 1983 and directed it until his death in 2005.
