“Juan Montoya possesses a fine baton technique, an excellent sense of musicianship with concern for structural form, who not only works well with the people in his orchestra but is a human being with heart.”

Vance George

San Francisco Symphony Orchestra

 

 

"Juan is a meticulous conductor and an exceptional motivator, bringing out the best from the musicians and performers in his own subtle ways. Always encouraging and always going the extra mile to assist, to move forward and to serve the general interest of the production."

Kuala Lumpur City Opera, Malaysia.

 

 

“Conductor, Juan Montoya’s style offers both assured control and fluidity to each of his performances, nurturing an inspired result from his musicians.”

Kevin Field
