John Wineglass
John Wineglass is celebrated for his TV scores from All My Children to Headliners & Legends with Matt Lauer featuring The Brady Bunch, Kathy Lee Gifford and Farah Fawcett. As a recipient of three Daytime Emmy Awards for Outstanding Achievement in Music Direction and Composition for a Drama Series, Mr. Wineglass holds seven Emmy nominations. In the classical music genre, he has garnered commissions from the Cabrillo Festival of Contemporary Music to the Kennedy Center Concert Hall. Wineglass’s iridescent compositions are inspired by the splendor of nature which he experiences partly through the lens of synesthesia, a condition in which sound involuntarily evokes an experience of color, shape, and movement.
Eckart Preu
Maestro Eckart Preu began his tenure as Music Director of Long Beach Symphony in 2017 and has already made a strong impression on the city of Long Beach, surrounding regions, and with critics for his programming and dynamic stage presence. Critics, the orchestra, and audiences alike have celebrated his ability to combine well-loved masterworks with rare or newer works in programs offering dimension, sophistication, and spirit. Preu also currently serves as Music Director of the Cincinnati Chamber Orchestra (OH) and Portland Symphony Orchestra (ME). Previously, he held the positions of Music Director of the Spokane Symphony (2004–2019) and Stamford Symphony (2005–2017) among many others.
