Yaniv Segal, Assistant Conductor

Assistant Conductor: Naples Philharmonic
Director: Naples Philharmonic Youth Orchestra

Yaniv Segal is the assistant conductor to Andrey Boreyko and the Naples Philharmonic and director of the Naples Philharmonic Youth Orchestra. A versatile young conductor, composer and violinist who is dedicated to bringing classical music of all types to a broad and mainstream audience, he was spotlighted by Esquire magazine as a rising star who is “redefining classical music.” Highlights of Yaniv’s last season include recording Joy and Sorrow, a CD of new Klezmer-inspired music that will be released on Chesky Records and HDtracks in early 2015, and the premiere performances of his Rite of Spring (Redux ) — an arrangement of Stravinsky’s Rite for modern orchestra including electric guitar, bass guitar and saxophone — with the Chelsea Symphony in New York City. He also served as assistant conductor for the Krzysztof Penderecki Festival in Warsaw and assisted Bright Sheng on a recording for Naxos Records with the Hong Kong Philharmonic.

In 2013 Yaniv finished his graduate degrees in conducting and composition at the University of Michigan. As a child of Polish and Israeli immigrants, Yaniv grew up in New York City, speaking three languages in a multicultural household. In support of his education, achievements and contributions to American Society, he was one of 32 recipients of the Paul and Daisy Soros Fellowship for New Americans in 2009.
