Hey Amarillo is a weekly, one-on-one interview podcast featuring the people and stories of Amarillo, Texas

Aug 29, 2023

A conversation with George Jackson, who has just begun his second year as music director of the Amarillo Symphony, guiding the organization during its 100th anniversary season. He's a resident of London, but travels all over Europe to work with symphony orchestras from Paris to Zurich, which has helped shape his perspective on the international reputation of both the Amarillo Symphony and its venue, the Globe-News Center for the Performing Arts. Jackson shares with host Jason Boyett about his garage-band background as a guitarist and drummer, how he found his way into conducting, and why Amarillo is such a special place for the arts.
