Huynh made his international conducting debut with
the Princess Galyani Vadhana Youth Orchestra in
Bangkok and has since conducted symphonies in
Baltimore, Toledo, Charlotte, Virginia, and Macon, in
addition to the Peabody Symphony Orchestra.
Selected from a group of more than 50 applicants from
around the world, Huynh impressed Oregon Symphony
music director Carlos Kalmar with his musicality and
ability to communicate.
“Norman is a young conductor with great musical
potential,” Kalmar said. “He is versatile, clear in his ideas,
and very charismatic. I am happy that he will join our
Oregon Symphony family.”
When Huynh joins the symphony on August 1 of this
year, he will assume the duties of associate conductor,
which include working closely with the music director,
conducting school, kids, and special concerts, being
prepared to substitute for any conductor at a moment’s
notice, and participating in the day-to-day affairs of the
symphony, including education and community engage-
Upon learning of his selection, Huynh said he was
“honored to be chosen” and was “greatly looking forward
to working with maestro Kalmar, as well as the
phenomenal musicians and staff. Sharing my passion for
music with people of all ages throughout Portland and the
great state of Oregon is a privilege and one that I thank
the Oregon Symphony for giving to me.”
Huynh earned his master’s degree in orchestral
conducting at the Peabody Institute of the Johns Hopkins
University, where he studied with Marin Alsop, Gustav

Elder Award Recipient
Sho Dozono was born in Okayama, Japan, on March 4, 1944. In 1954, at 10 years
old, he and his family immigrated to America and settled in Portland. He attended
Cleveland High School and later earned a bachelor’s degree from the University of
Washington and a master’s degree from Portland State
University, both with a focus on education. After
teaching history for five years at Grant High School, he
joined Azumano Travel in 1976 and later became its
president and CEO in 1987. He married his wife, Loen,
in 1968. They have five children: Elisa, Kristen, Alison,
