2016 CUSD Honor Conductor

2016 CUSD High School Honor Symphonic Orchestra ~ Daniel Alfred Wachs


Conductor Daniel Alfred Wachs emerged on the international scene following his debut with the Mozarteum Orchestra of Salzburg in November 2010, leading a world premiere by Toshio Hosokawa at the Grosses Festspielaus.  The Austrian press praised:  "Engaging, rhythmically inspired, precise in its execution, the "Mambo" was equal to a performace by Gustavo Dudamel and the Simon Bolivar Youth Orchestra!"  Wachs has guest conducted Orange County's Pacific Symphony, the National Symphony Orchestra, New York City Ballet at Lincoln Center and many others across the nation.  Under Wachs' leadership, the Chapman orchestra completed a survey of Mahler song cycles with baritone Vladimir Chernov and initiated a paratnership with LA Opera's Domingo-Thornton Young Artist Program.  An accomplished opera conductor and collaborative pianist, Wachs guides ensembes with energy, precision, and a welcome sense of clarity and poise.
