Joseph Young conducts William Hagen and RPO in Barber, Dvorak’s "New World" Symphony 09/05 @ 8pm

Jeff Roffman

“There's such a beautiful chord and such a beautiful beginning. It's like this warm welcome to the piece.” ~ violinist William Hagen

Praised for his suavely adventurous programing, Joseph Young shines as “one of the most gifted conductors of his generation.” Joseph is Music Director of the Berkeley Symphony, Artistic Director of Ensembles for the Peabody Conservatory, and Resident Conductor of the National Youth Orchestra–USA at Carnegie Hall.


Enjoy his Rochester debut in this concert from November 2021 with violinist William Hagen performing Samuel Barber’s Violin Concerto, Antonin Dvorak’s Symphony No. 9, “From the New World” and “Onward” by Brian Nabors.

“It’s a musical journey that depicts the large and small changes in life that push us individually and collectively into the future,” Young told WXXI’s Julia Figueras On Record.
