The Sao Paulo Symphony Orchestra Foundation has announced that Music Director Marin Alsop, 61, will not renew her contract in December 2019 and become, at that moment, Honorary Conductor.

Alsop, who is also Music Director of the Baltimore Symphony, took her position in Sao Paulo in 2012.

To celebrate this long-standing partnership, the Brazilian orchestra will create the Marin Alsop Award for Young Brazilian Conductors.
