Last month I had the privilege of photographing Carlos Izcaray, the new Music Director Designate of the Alabama Symphony Orchestra. He was getting acquainted with the community while drinking coffee and eating breakfast with the locals at Continental Bakery in English Village. Prior to this visit, I had the opportunity to see him in his orchestra directorial debut at the Alys Stephens Performing Arts Center. Carlos is an incredibly talented, kind and humble person. I know Birmingham is going to embrace him and his lovely family. He’s going to make some magical music in the Magic City.
