Izler Solomon (January 11, 1910, Saint Paul, Minnesota - 6 December 1987, Fort Wayne, Indiana) was an American orchestra conductor, active mostly in the Midwest.
From 1936 to 1941 he conducted the Illinois Symphony Orchestra, where he premiered more than 150 American works. Subsequently he was music director of the Columbus Philharmonic Orchestra (1941-1949), and of the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra (1956-1976). As a guest conductor Solomon appeared with the Philadelphia Orchestra, Chicago Symphony, Israel Philharmonic, and Indiana University Philharmonic Orchestra. His career was cut short by a stroke in 1976.
He made a number of respected recordings, including the world premiere recording of Max Bruch's Violin Concerto No. 2, with the RCA Victor Symphony Orchestra, and Jascha Heifetz as soloist, in 1954.
