Meet Joseph Young!
New ASO Assistant Conductor & Youth Orchestra Music Director
We are pleased to share that Joseph Young has been named the new Atlanta Symphony Orchestra (ASO) Assistant Conductor and Atlanta Symphony Youth Orchestra (ASYO) Music Director. Mr. Young will begin his new post on June 1, 2014. He will also assume the role of Music Director of the ASYO in the 2014-15 season.
Mr. Young succeeds Jere Flint as ASYO Music Director, a position he has held for 35 years. Mr. Flint has also been a staff conductor for 39 years, and an ASO cellist for 47 years. He will be missed both on and off the stage.
I am so excited and honored to be joining the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra’s artistic team alongside Robert Spano and Donald Runnicles. This Orchestra is known for its innovation and world-class musicians. I am grateful for the opportunity to work with both professional and student musicians and to engage with the Atlanta community as a whole.
Assistant Conductor and ASYO Music Director Designate Joseph Young
Joseph is a very talented conductor and an extremely nice young man who will fit beautifully into the educational programs and ASYO. I leave these very important aspects of the symphonic world in very capable hands.
