Welcome the new Triangle Youth Philharmonic Conductor, David Glover! He will be making his first appearance on the TYP Concert, Nov 18, will make a cameo appearance on the Holiday Concert, December 17, and will have the full reins on the May 5th, 2019 concert.
David is known to North Carolina audiences as the former Associate Conductor with the North Carolina Symphony. He conducted numerous children’s concerts and evening performances across the state, as well as Pops Concerts and the Young People’s Concert series in Raleigh. He frequently gave the pre-concert talks before subscription concerts. Before coming to North Carolina he was Assistant Conductor with the Indianapolis Symphony and Artistic Director of the Wabash Valley Youth Symphony. He has led numerous orchestras including the Ensemble Orchestral de Paris, North Czech Philharmonic, Bulgarian Opera in Bourgas, and Hungarian Opera-Cluj. He holds degrees from the University of Georgia and Boston University in Violin Performance, as well as a Masters in Instrumental Conducting from Indiana University where he was named adjunct lecturer in 2007. David and his wife, Emily (a tenured violinist with the North Carolina Symphony) have settled in Cary and recently had their first child.
It is a testament to the Triangle Youth Philharmonic’s founder, Hugh Partridge, that such a qualified musician wanted to join the organization he has built over 30 years.
