The Windsor Symphony Orchestra, in Canada, has this week announced the appointment of 27-year-old American conductor Daniel Wiley as its new assistant conductor - effective from June this year.
A graduate of the Boise State University and the University of North Texas, Daniel is currently pursuing his doctorate in orchestral conducting at the University of North Texas.
“I am thrilled that Daniel Wiley will join the WSO team as our new Assistant Conductor ..." Windsor Symphony Music Director Robert Franz has said.
"Not only will his skills as a musician be a tremendous asset to our organization, but Daniel’s depth of experience in the world of education will enable the WSO to ratchet up the work that we are able to do in the Windsor/Essex community," he has said.
In his new appointment, Daniel will lead the Windsor Symphony Youth Orchestra - in addition to planning and conducting educational outreach initiatives and projects.
