Colorado Public Radio has published an article about Brett Mitchell's appointment as Music Director of the Colorado Symphony:

Exciting news for classical music fans in Colorado this morning: The Colorado Symphony today revealed the name of its next music director.

Conductor Brett Mitchell, the 37-year-old associate conductor of the Cleveland Orchestra, will be the next maestro to lead the Colorado Symphony.

Mitchell doesn’t officially become music director until the 2017-18 season starts. But he’ll conduct several concerts this year as “music director designate.”

He’s slated to hold the music director position for four seasons.

In Cleveland, he also served as music director of the Cleveland Orchestra’s youth orchestra and increased the ensemble’s focus on American and contemporary composers...

Mitchell is active on social media, often sharing photos from rehearsals and concert tours on his Twitter feed.

He replaces Andrew Litton, who's taken on a reduced role with the orchestra after accepting a position with the New York City Ballet. Litton served as music director for four seasons beginning in 2012.
