Friday, March 27, 2015, the Los Angeles Philharmonic announced that Gustavo Dudamel has extended his contract as the orchestra’s music director through the 2021-22 season. The 34-year-old Venezuelan conductor and violinist made his LA Philharmonic debut in 2005. In 2007, the Philharmonic named Dudamel as its next music director, a position which he began with the beginning of the 2009-10 season.

Dudamel has also served as music director of the Orquesta Sinfónica Simón Bolívar in his native Venezuela, where he received his early music education through the well-known youth orchestra and training program, El Sistema.

The young conductor was a likely candidate to succeed Alan Gilbert as music director of the New York Philharmonic in 2017, as well as Simon Rattle as the music director of the Berlin Philharmonic in 2018.
