In 2007, Ms. Arrieche won the University of São Paulo Orchestra conducting competition and became the Assistant Conductor of one of Brazil’s finest orchestras, a position that she held until 2010 when she came to the USA. She has conducted the North Czech Philharmonic Teplice, the Minas Gerais Philharmonic, the London Symphony Orchestra, the Brazilian Youth Symphony and the São Paulo Orchestra. In addition to these groups, she has also worked with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, the Colorado Symphony, the Bard Conservatory Orchestra and the Nashville Symphony Orchestra. Motivated by the lack of opportunities for young Brazilian conductors to work with native orchestras, Arrieche planned and organized a series of workshops for Brazilian conductors in 2009. In 2010, she was offered a place in Maestro Harold Farberman’s conducting master class and a scholarship to Bard College.
In 2009, Maestro Fabio Mechetti cited Arrieche as “one of the best Brazilian Conductors of the new generation.”
