"Michael Repper is a breakout star in the conducting world and will be lending his talents to the Ashland Symphony Orchestra as its next Conductor and Music Director.
Repper recently claimed a #1 spot on the Billboard Charts with an album produced with the New York Youth Symphony.
“What I see my role is as a conductor, it’s more than just providing and presenting concerts of the highest artistic caliber,” Repper said. “That’s a baseline, it’s where we try to start. Fundamentally, what we’re trying to do as musicians is bring people together and connect people by using music. My mission, my objective, in my concerts is to energize people towards that goal, to try and bring people together, to try and connect people, to try and make our communities a more diverse and welcoming place.”
