Askonas Holt is delighted to welcome Brazilian conductor, Simone Menezes, to its roster for worldwide management.
Simone’s recent and future guest appearances include with the Munich Philharmonic, Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Berlin, Los Angeles Philharmonic, Orchestra dell’Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia, Wiener Kammerorchester, Orchestre National Bordeaux Aquitaine, Brussels Philharmonic and Britten Sinfonia.
This past October, Simone premiered another project blending music with visual images, this time with photographer Sebastião Salgado and the Britten Sinfonia. ‘Amazônia in concert’ celebrates the striking black and white images of the Amazon captured by the Brazilian photojournalist, pairing them with music by Heitor Villa-Lobos and Philip Glass.
