The 2014/15 season sees Case Scaglione return to the New York Philharmonic for concerts with Joshua Bell. This follows his promotion to Associate Conductor - a position that was revived especially for him by Music Director Alan Gilbert. Scaglione began his tenure as Assistant Conductor with the orchestra in 2011 and made his subscription debut in November 2012, stepping in for Kurt Masur.
This season Scaglione makes his debuts with the Luzerner Sinfonieorchester, Rochester Philharmonic and Dallas Symphony orchestras and returns to the Hong Kong Philharmonic.
He made his professional conducting debut with The Cleveland Orchestra in 2010 after being awarded the Aspen Conducting Prize in the same year, and in 2011 he was recipient of the Conductor's Prize from the Solti Foundation US.
Since then, he has appeared as a guest conductor with the Saint Louis Symphony, Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, Orchestra of St. Luke's, and the Houston, Colorado and Jacksonville symphony orchestras, as well as many others. In September 2013, he assisted Sir Andrew Davis on Elektra at the Lyric Opera of Chicago.
Scaglione is a regular visitor to China, where he has given concerts with the Shanghai Symphony, Guangzhou Symphony and China Philharmonic orchestras. Last season he conducted a performance of Bach's Mass in B Minor with the Orquesta Clásica Santa Cecilia in Madrid.
As Music Director of the Young Musicians Foundation Debut Orchestra of Los Angeles from 2008 to 2011, Scaglione was the driving force behind the continued artistic growth and diversification of the organization. Initiatives included his founding of 360° Music, an educational outreach program which brought the orchestra to inner city schools. Scaglione’s eclectic programming included music by Ligeti, Wagner’s Tristan und Isolde - the orchestra's first staged opera in nearly 60 years – and the Los Angeles premiere of John Adams’ Doctor Atomic Symphony.
Case Scaglione was a student of David Zinman at the American Academy of Conducting at Aspen, where he won the James Conlon Prize, and was Assistant Conductor of the Aspen Music Festival and School. He was one of three Conducting Fellows at Tanglewood in 2011, chosen by James Levine and Stefan Asbury. He received his Bachelor’s Degree from the Cleveland Institute of Music and his postgraduate studies were spent at the Peabody Institute where he studied with Gustav Meier.
