Due to the tragic loss of Maestro Guido Lamell, a series of guest conductors will grace the podium for the 2021-2022 season.
In Memory of Guido Lamell
The entire Santa Monica Symphony community mourns the loss of Maestro Guido Lamell who passed away July 13, 2021 following a heart attack. His warmth, enthusiasm and passion for music will be remembered by all.
Guido divided his affections between the Los Angeles Philharmonic where he was a violinist for over 40 years and the Santa Monica Symphony which he conducted for 9 years.
As Music Director and Conductor of the Santa Monica Symphony he introduced audiences to cutting edge music such as Benjamin Boone’s “Waterless Music” and regularly dazzled audiences with works by Beethoven, Brahms, Mahler and other masters of the classical repertoire.
He touched many lives as a musician, conductor, teacher, and advocate for the arts and will be sorely missed.
