SCOTT YOO, conductor

After beginning his musical studies at age three, Scott Yoo performed Mendelssohn's Violin Concerto with the Boston Symphony at age twelve. He received first prize in the 1988 Josef Gingold International Violin Competition, the 1989 Young Concert Artists International Auditions, and the 1994 Avery Fisher Career Grant. In 1993, Mr. Yoo founded the Metamorphosen Chamber Orchestra, conducting the ensemble in its series at Jordan Hall in Boston, and more than ninety performances on tour.

Scott Yoo has collaborated with eminent artists Sarah Chang, Edgar Meyer, Benita Valente, and Dawn Upshaw. He is currently Music Director and Principal Conductor of Festival Mozaic, and Artistic Director of the Medellín Festicámara, a chamber music program for underprivileged young musicians.

As a guest-conductor, Mr. Yoo has led the Colorado, Dallas, Indianapolis, New World, San Francisco and Utah Symphonies. He regularly conducts the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra, and led their Elliott Carter Festival as well as numerous subscription series. In Europe, he conducted the City of London Sinfonia, the Britten Sinfonia, the Ensemble Orchestral de Paris, Odense Symphony and the Estonian National Symphony. In recent seasons, Mr. Yoo made debuts with the Seoul Philharmonic and the Yomiuri Nippon Orchestra in Tokyo, and made his Carnegie Hall debut with the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra and pianist Brad Mehldau. 

A proponent of the music of our time, Mr. Yoo has premiered 60 works by 31 composers. With Metamorphosen, Mr. Yoo has recorded Mark O'Connor's American Seasons for Sony Classical; John Harbison's chamber orchestra works with soprano Dawn Upshaw for Bridge, nominated for a 1999 National Public Radio Performance Today Award; and song cycles of Earl Kim with sopranos Benita Valente and Karol Bennett for New World, named a 2001 Critics Choice by the New York Times. His recent recording projects include complete orchestral works of Earl Kim with the RTE National Orchestra of Ireland for Naxos; and works of Elliott Carter and the complete Mozart Piano Concertos with Bridge.

Mr. Yoo has appeared as a conductor/soloist with the San Francisco, Utah, Phoenix, Dallas, Utah, and New World Symphonies, and has appeared as a chamber musician with Bargemusic, Boston Chamber Music Society, the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, and the Seattle Chamber Music Festival.

Mr. Yoo studied violin with Roman Totenberg, Albert Markov, Paul Kantor and Dorothy DeLay, and conducting with Michael Gilbert and Michael Tilson-Thomas.
