Miguel Harth-BeDoya, for whom the position of associate conductor of the Los Angeles Philharmonic was created in 1999, will leave that post next month, at the end of the season. He will continue to conduct the orchestra, however. No replacement has been named. "We knew about this two years ago," Harth-Bedoya said last week from Texas, where he serves as music director of the Fort Worth Symphony and lives with his wife, choral director Maritza Caceres, and their 2 1/2-year-old daughter, Elena.
