Michael Tilson Thomas named as USC Professor

MICHAEL TILSON THOMAS HAS BEEN named as a professor at USC starting Fall 2015.  It is a huge boon for the University to hire such a big name.  The press release does not say whether MTT is leaving any of his current positions, but he’s pretty busy already: “In addition to being the longtime music director of the San Francisco Symphony, he also is the principal guest conductor of the London Symphony Orchestra and the founder and artistic director of the New World Symphony, America’s orchestral academy.”  It’s hard to see where he can find the time to fit it all in.
