Since her appointment as Assistant Conductor of the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande for the 2022-23 season (extended for 2023-24), Ana María Patiño-Osorio has gathered praise as a remarkable conductor expressing wisdom, finesse, and deep respect for music. Chosen from nearly 300 candidates to work directly with Jonathan Nott and an elite roster of guest conductors, shortly after her appointment, in January 2023 she successfully stepped in at short notice to conduct the OSR featuring violinist Daniel Lozakovich and pianist Mikhail Pletnev as soloists. Of her conducting, Le Temps wrote: “the entire performance of Ana Maria Patino-Osorio impressed with her strength and her tranquillity of being.”

Following on Ana Maria’s recent successes, she has been invited to guest conduct in upcoming seasons orchestras such as the Orchestre de Chambre de Lausanne, Iberacademy Orchestra at Salzburger Festpiele, the Orchesta Sinfónica Nacional de Columbia, the Orquesta Filarmónica de Bogotá and the Orquesta Nacional de Uruguay. Her recent engagements included the Meininger Staatstheather, the Orchestre de la Haute école de musique de Genève, the Orquesta Sinfónica EAFIT, the Orquesta Filarmónica de Medellín and the Filarmónica Joven de Colombia, among others.

Ana Maria began her musical training as a saxophonist before transitioning into orchestral conducting. She completed her undergraduate degree in Orchestra Conducting at the Universidad EAFIT in Medellín before being accepted to the prestigious masters programme of Orchestral Conducting at the Zürcher Hochschule der Künste as a student of Johannes Schlaefli, where she graduated with honours in 2021. During that time, she has attended several masterclasses with Herbert Bloomsted, Matthias Pintscher, Thomas Adès and Olaris Elt, and was invited by Bernard Haitink to the Lucerne Music Festival in Switzerland. Since 2015 she has been involved with Iberacademy Orchestra in Medellín where she has been assisting its co-founder and conductor Roberto Gonzalez-Monjas in multitude of projects and has conducted the orchestra as a guest conductor.

A finalist of the Solti International Conducting Competition with the Frankfurt Radio Symphony in 2020, Ana Maria is also the recipient of the 2021 National Prize for best Conductor of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Bogotá and a winner of the Conducting Fellowship at Dirigentenforum des Deutschen Musikrates, Germany, in 2019.
