Conductor Loris Tjeknavorian

GLENDALE—The Glendale News Press, in an article by Melanie Hicken, reported that the struggling Glendale Symphony Orchestra has inked a temporary deal with an internationally-renowned conductor ahead of what the organization hopes will be a more long-term contract, officials said Tuesday.

Representatives for the orchestra said they hope to hire Loris Tjeknavorian, who has led orchestras in Vienna, London and Yerevan, to serve as musical director. Details on a proposed one-year contract are still being worked out, said Glenn Treibitz, president of the board of directors.

In the meantime, Tjeknavorian has agreed to lead at least one performance this fall as a guest conductor, Treibitz said.
