The 2015/16 season sees Case Scaglione make concert debuts with Detroit Symphony Orchestra and Orchestre Philharmonique du Luxembourg, as well as with the Juilliard Orchestra at New York’s Alice Tully Hall. He returns to South America to work with Orquesta Sinfónica Nacional de Colombia and makes his French debut with Orchestre National d’Île de France on a six-concert tour. Other European dates include the Bilkent Symphony, Brno Philharmonic and Janáček Philharmonic orchestras.  


In 2014/15, Scaglione made his official subscription debut with the New York Philharmonic in his final season as the orchestra’s Assistant then Associate Conductor – a position that was revived especially for him by Music Director Alan Gilbert. He also received high critical acclaim for his concerts with Dallas Symphony in both the orchestra’s ReMix and subscription series.


Elsewhere, Scaglione has recently conducted the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, Luzerner Sinfonieorchester, Kristiansand Symphony and Rochester Philharmonic orchestras. Since his professional conducting debut with The Cleveland Orchestra in 2010, he has also appeared as a guest conductor with the St. Louis Symphony, Orchestra of St. Luke's, and the Houston, Colorado and Jacksonville symphony orchestras.


A regular visitor to Asia, Scaglione has conducted concerts with the Shanghai Symphony, Guangzhou Symphony and China Philharmonic orchestras, and later this season he returns to the Hong Kong Philharmonic for a third consecutive year. 


As Music Director of the Young Musicians Foundation Debut Orchestra of Los Angeles (2008-11), Scaglione was the driving force behind the artistic growth and diversification of the organisation, and founded their educational outreach program ‘360° Music’. His 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. Passionate about music education, he has a regular teaching relationship with the Juilliard School.


Case Scaglione studied under David Zinman at the American Academy of Conducting at Aspen, where he won the James Conlon Prize. He was awarded the Aspen Conducting Prize in 2010 and in 2011 received the Conductor's Prize from the Solti Foundation US. He was one of three Conducting Fellows at Tanglewood in 2011, chosen by James Levine and Stefan Asbury. Scaglione 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.
