This Young Rising Star from Philly Just Got The Call-Up Of A Lifetime

Kensho Watanabe can barely fathom the turn of events that found him on stage leading the Philadelphia Orchestra last weekend — with three hours’ notice.

.

“I know what happened,” Watanabe said in an interview this week. “But my brain is still processing it.”

.

Surreal is one word that comes to mind, he said. Watanabe was notified at 5 p.m. Saturday that music director Yannick Net-Suin had come down with a virus and could not conduct the 8 p.m. program at the Kimmel Center.

.

But supported is another word, because he knew the players personally, having played in the orchestra as a substitute violinist, and, later, having passed the audition that landed him the assistant conductor position in fall 2016.

.

His biggest fans were there, too. “My parents were able to drive down from Greenwich, Conn. I called at 5:15 p.m., and they jumped in the car right then.”

.

As assistant, Watanabe had attended all of Net-Suin’s rehearsals and had learned the pieces. By several accounts, his concert debut with the orchestra was better than good. In fact, the hall was reportedly electric.

.

“He was really poised … to just drop in and be cool as a cucumber … that’s really special,” said composer Mason Bates, who was on stage Saturday running the electronics for his piece Alternative Energy. “It was very impressive.”

.

Born in Yokohama, Japan, and raised in the United States, the 29-year-old Watanabe attended the Juilliard School’s precollege division as a violinist but entered Yale as a biology student. His grandfather had died of colon cancer, and he felt inspired to become a physician.

.

However, music won out, and before long, he was a conducting student at the Curtis Institute, working with  Otto-Werner Mueller and later with Net-Suin. He graduated in 2015.
