Arabella Arts Signs Conductor Joseph Young

Young has joined the roster of the artist management company for general management 


Alongside a guest conducting career, American conductor Joseph Young serves as the music director of the Berkeley Symphony and artistic director of ensembles at his alma mater, the Peabody Conservatory.

Young will be represented by Stefana Atlas and Joshua John at the classical management agency Arabella Arts, joining an acclaimed roster including Inbal Segev, Alma Deutscher, plus VC Artists Francisco Fullana, Paul Huang, and Charles Yang.

Young has served as assistant conductor of the Atlanta Symphony, music director of the Atlanta Symphony Youth Orchestra, resident conductor of the Phoenix Symphony, and as the League of American Orchestras conducting fellow at the Buffalo Philharmonic and Baltimore Symphony Orchestra.

His concert engagements have included San Francisco Symphony, Mzansi National Philharmonic Orchestra, Cincinnati Opera, the Seattle Symphony, Detroit Symphony, New World Symphony Orchestra, Spoleto Festival Orchestra, Orquestra Sinfónica do Porto Casa da Música, and the Orquesta Sinfónica y Coro de RTVE.

For the 2022/23 season, Young has made debuts with the LA Philharmonic, and will lead NYO2 at Carnegie Hall and in residency in the Dominican Republic.  

He has also conducted the Washington National Opera in Jeanine Tesori’s opera Blue — which recently won a $25,000 grant from the USA’s National Endowment for the Arts — and will make his National Symphony Orchestra debut on June 8 and 10, 2023.

Young is also a dedicated educator and serves on the board of New Music USA, helping amplify a range of musical voices and stories from history and the modern world. His mentors have included Gustav Meier, Markand Thakar, Jorma Panula, Robert Spano, and Marin Alsop, with whom he often collaborates.
