KTEP is proud to present the 2015-2016 season of the El Paso Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Music Director Bohuslav Rattay.

Czech conductor Bohuslav Rattay is a busy ambassador for classical music, working with orchestras across the globe to produce symphonic works of all kinds to a diverse audience. The Music Director of the El Paso Symphony Orchestra also serves as Music Director for the Midland Symphony Orchestra and the Lake Charles Symphony Orchestra. As he gains a reputation as one of the finest young talents of his generation, Mr. Rattay combines impassioned and virtuosic musicianship with a determination to bring great music into the lives of all people.

Mr. Rattay holds degrees from the Prague Conservatory, Rice University and the Peabody Institute of Music. He names Gustav Meier, Larry Rachleff, Benjamin Kamins, and Neeme Jarvi as his most influential teachers. Bohuslav divides his time between the United States and Europe, always continuing his quest to find new ways to bring great music into the lives of people on both continents.

  The EL PASO SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA presents a special program devoted to the music & life of Antonin Dvořák. It's called "Dvořák in America," and traces the development of the Czech composer's famed "New World Symphony."
