October 16, 2018 – Musical America today announced Carlos Miguel Prieto as 2019 Conductor of the Year.
 
The 2019 Conductor of the Year award will be presented to Carlos Miguel Prieto at the 58th Annual Musical America Awards at Carnegie Hall on Tuesday, December 11, 2018, in New York. The Musical America honor, among the most prestigious awards in classical music, recognizes Prieto’s flourishing international career as a versatile and innovative conductor. Currently Music Director of the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra, Orquesta Sinfonica Naciónal de Mexico, Orquesta Sinfónica de Minería, and The Orchestra of the Americas, his vast range of repertoire stretches from Bach and Haydn to Shostakovich, Revueltas, and Philip Glass. An enthusiastic champion of contemporary music, Mr. Prieto has commissioned and premiered over 100 works, with a particular focus on Latin American composers.
 
Carlos Miguel Prieto on being named Musical America's 2019 Conductor of the Year:
 
"I am thankful to Musical America - a publication I cherish - for this distinguished honor. I am humbled to be in the company of past and present honorees who have been role models and have inspired me throughout my career. 
 
I am blessed to have grown up in México which is the epicenter of the Americas, a region of the world where music is vibrant and vital.
 
None of this would be possible without the support of my family, from whom I inherited a profound love of music. My wife, Isabel, is the reason I can pursue my passion. 
 
I share this honor with the musicians, orchestras and organizations that have embraced the belief that we can, and must, improve the lives of others through music. The task ahead is to use that potential to unite us and make us better.”
