JOSÉ-LUIS NOVO

Spanish born José-Luis Novo instilled a new and vibrant artistic vision into the Annapolis Symphony Orchestra since his appointment as Artistic Director and Conductor of the Maryland-based symphony in 2005. Highlights of Novo’s tenure include numerous appearances at the Music Center at Strathmore with violinists James Ehnes, Anne Akiko Meyers, Leticia Moreno and Chee-Yun, pianist Olga Kern, late cellist Lynn Harrell, guitarist Manuel Barrueco, pipa virtuoso Wu Man and the Naval Academy Glee Club. Also remarkable are a 2012 return appearance at the Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center with mezzo-soprano Denyce Graves, national broadcasts on NPR’s Performance Today, debut TV broadcasts on Washington’s WETA Metro PBS, the launching of the ASO’s award-winning streaming platform Symphony+, the creation of the Annapolis Symphony Academy and the ASO’s first commercial CD com

The Artistic Director’s Chair is graciously underwritten by Elizabeth Richebourg Rea, daughter of Philip Richebourg, Annapolis Symphony Orchestra Co-Founder and First Board President (1967-1974).

“My father conducted every day of his life as if resolute in achieving perfect harmony. I can think of no greater legacy than naming the Artistic Director’s Chair after my father, Philip Richebourg.”

8 Annapolis Symphony Orchestra 2023-24

memorating the 300th anniversary of the signing of the City of Annapolis’ Royal Charter. In July of 2022, Maestro Novo and the ASO stunned audiences on both sides of the Atlantic in a debut international tour to Spain with guitar virtuoso Pepe Romero as guest soloist.

Maestro Novo’s continuous drive for artistic excellence, innovative thematic programming, and collaborations with some of today’s most respected guest artists keeps generating unprecedented artistic growth and enthusiastic reviews from publications such as The Washington Post and The Baltimore Sun.

In addition to his directorship of the ASO, Maestro Novo held an impressive thirteen-year tenure as Music Director and Conductor of the Binghamton Philharmonic in New York state from 2003 to 2016. Prior to this, he served as Assistant Conductor of the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra under both late Music Director Emeritus Jesús López-Cobos and former Music Director Paavo Järvi, and the Cincinnati Pops Orchestra under the late Erich Kunzel.

Recent and upcoming guest conducting engagements include debut appearances with the Rochester Philharmonic, the Grand Rapids, Hilton Head, Palm Beach, Alexandria and South Bend Symphony Orchestras, and return appearances with the Baltimore Symphony, the Fresno Philharmonic, Symphoria, and a Kimmel Center debut in Philadelphia conducting the Curtis Institute Orchestra. After a successful debut with the Thailand Philharmonic Orchestra (TPO) for the Thailand International

Elizabeth Richebourg Rea, in honoring the legacy of her father as co-founder and first board president of the Annapolis Symphony Orchestra, has created her own legacy with the ASO. Her continued support, beginning with the largest single gift in the history of the orchestra for the 50th Anniversary Season in 2011, has been noted as transformational in inspiring future donations of substantial amounts, in addition to gifts by pledge over multiple years. She has pioneered new levels of giving and today an expanded ASO continues to thrive to greater heights. Elizabeth is sponsor of The Music Director’s Chair in her father’s name and in addition is the founding member of the annual Philip Richebourg Encore Circle.

My father Philip Richebourg conducted his own orchestra every day of his life. He personified exactitude and precision in business; in service to his community and in leadership on numerous Boards. He was meticulous in his passions as pilot, musician, archivist. Dedicated to each task at hand my father approached all things in life as if resolute in achieving one goal, that of perfect harmony.

Elizabeth Richebourg Rea is a fine art photographer and curator. Rea’s art career began in the 1970s working for The Museum of Modern Art and Leo Castelli. Curator of numerous exhibitions of Joseph Cornell, she was also catalogue editor and research consultant for two Roy Lichtenstein Museum Retrospectives. Elizabeth is President of the Dungannon Foundation, sponsor of The Rea Award for the Short Story. She is active on the Peggy Guggenheim Advisory Board in Venice and is Honorary Trustee of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation. Elizabeth Rea lives in Connecticut.

The Annapolis Symphony Orchestra is indebted to Philip Richebourg, CoFounder and First Board President (1967-1974). Philip Richebourg’s stalwart support, organizational vision and strong leadership during its formative years helped solidify the orchestra financially and administratively, ensuring its longevity and signature as one of Maryland’s most distinguished performing arts organizations. Philip passionately supported the Annapolis Symphony Orchestra as it sought to enrich the lives of the community through classical music and educational programs. From the modest beginnings of a small community ensemble to the present acclaimed professional orchestra, Philip was at the helm every step of the way. Philip Richebourg’s commitment, dedication and passion for musical awareness leaves an indelible mark on the history of the ASO. The Annapolis Symphony Orchestra would not be what it is today without him.

Annapolis Symphony Orchestra - Gabriela Lena Frank Creative Academy of Music “Embracing 21st Century Voices” A cocommissioning project to benefit emerging composers and young artists.

The Annapolis Symphony Orchestra (ASO) and Gabriela Lena Frank Creative Academy of Music (GLFCAM) are pleased to announce a multi-year co-commissioning partnership, Embracing 21st Century Voices. The partnership supports new symphonic works composed by alums of GLFCAM core programs.

ASO Artistic Director and Conductor José-Luis Novo and GLFCAM founder Gabriela Frank have enjoyed a long and productive artistic relationship. Ms. Frank previously served as ASO’s Composer-in-Residence and wrote two orchestral works dedicated to the ASO, one of which was to celebrate the ASO’s 50th anniversary in 2012.

Novo and Frank formalized the multi-year “Embracing 21st Century Voices” partnership after the successful co-commission and premiere of Resonance | Rush | Ride by GLF-

CAM alum Jessica Hunt for ASO’s 60th anniversary in May 2022. The agreement stipulates commitment to award a $20,000 co-commission fee plus copy funds each year to a mutually agreed upon composer.

In addition to the award and prior to each premiere, GLFCAM composers receive an orchestral reading of their work in progress, feedback from maestro Novo, and mentorship from Ms. Frank. The ASO will perform the premiere of each new work at a Masterworks concert during consecutive seasons, and the compositions are to be recorded for later release on the London-based Toccata label.
