Case Scaglione is quickly developing a reputation as one of the
most multifaceted conductors of his generation. In September 2011 he began his tenure as Assistant Conductor of the New York Philharmonic where assists music director Alan Gilbert and guest conductors. Case's upcoming engagements include concerts with the Baltimore, Houston, Pacific, Guangzhou, and Shanghai Symphonies as well as the China Philharmonic.
A passionate advocate of both operatic and symphonic music as well as a champion of new music, Case Scaglione has cultivated a diverse repertoire. For three years he served as music director of the Young Musicians Foundation Debut Orchestra of Los Angeles where he followed in the footsteps of such renowned conductors as Michael Tilson-Thomas, Lawrence Foster, and Myung-Whun Chung. There he was the driving force behind the continued artistic growth and diversification of the organization. In his second season he spearheaded one of the most ambitious projects in the orchestra’s history, a staged production of Act II from Richard Wagner’s Tristan und Isolde. His adventurous programming spanned works ranging from Mozart to Ligeti, included six world premieres, and concluded with the Los Angeles premiere of John Adams’ Doctor Atomic Symphony which was supported by the Debut Orchestra’s first-ever grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.
Mr. Scaglione was named the 2011 Solti Fellow by the Solti Foundation U.S.. He was also recently chosen as one of three conducting
fellows for the summer of 2011 at the Tanglewood Music Center. Previously a student of David Zinman at the American Academy of Conducting at Aspen for three summers, he won the James Conlon Prize and, in 2010, the esteemed Aspen Conducting Prize. As a result he made his debut with the Cleveland Orchestra in July of 2010. Also during the summer of
2010 he served as assistant conductor of the Aspen Music Festival and
School, conducting a wide range of performances, including a performance of Alban Berg's ‘Seven Early Songs’ with Michelle DeYoung. He also covered all orchestra performances and acted as assistant to guest conductors.
A native of Texas, Mr. Scaglione received his Bachelor’s Degree from the Cleveland Institute of Music. His postgraduate studies were
spent at the Peabody Institute studying with Gustav Meier.
