Inon Barnatan named new SummerFest music director by La Jolla Music Society

Acclaimed pianist Inon Barnatan has been chosen by the La Jolla Music Society to succeed Cho-Liang “Jimmy” Lin as the music director of SummerFest, the nonprofit arts organization’s annual August chamber-music festival.

The Israeli-born, New York-based Barnatan will be only the fourth SummerFest music director in the event’s 32-year history.

Barnatan, 38, will take over in 2019 from Lin, 58, who will conclude his 18th year heading SummerFest on Aug. 31. Barnatan’s first season in his new position will coincide with next spring’s opening of the society’s new, $78 million Conrad Prebys Performing Arts Center in La Jolla.
