"The moment Dworetz lifted her hands ... I felt the exhilaration of the orchestra ... Reality stilled for just a moment."

— Seattle Times

A native of Atlanta, Georgia, Tamara Dworetz is a dynamic and electric musical force on the podium. She has conducted the Paris Mozart Orchestra, Boston Pops, Dallas Opera Orchestra, Cabrillo Festival Orchestra, Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra, Amarillo Symphony, and Mankato Symphony.  She has served as an assistant conductor for the Orchestre de Paris (Klaus Mäkelä),  Gürzenich Orchestre Cologne (François-Xavier Roth), BBC Concert Orchestra (Bramwell Tovey) and Atlanta Symphony (Nathalie Stutzmann) ....

Communication between soloist and conductor was superb, and, astonishingly, so was the balance between piano and 80-something-piece orchestra... Dworetz maintained a modest tempo while emphasizing all the best dramatic moments of Aaron Copland's "Appalachian Spring" and chose a highly unusual curtain-raiser: "Duo Ye."

Eric Harrison, Arkansas Democrat Gazette


"Tamara Dworetz crisply led a flamboyant aria [SeBramate d'amar chi vi sdegna] from Handel’s Serse."

Scott Cantrell, The Dallas Morning News
