Catching up with Jayce Ogren, in Texas, Colorado, Indiana, Missouri, and elsewhere…

With mounting success in both symphonic and operatic repertoire, Jayce Ogren is building a reputation as one of the finest young conductors to emerge from the United States in recent seasons.

Ogren is enjoying a busy winter, leading the Dallas Symphony in subscription performances (a special Valentine’s presentation of the film West Side Story with orchestra) and with the Colorado Symphony, in a program featuring works by Sibelius, Khachaturian, and Mussorgsky’s “Pictures at an Exhibition.”

The Colorado Symphony is offering a new pilot-test of live-streamed concerts; enjoy Ogren’s full concert with the CSO on their SoundCloud page, below.

Looking forward, Ogren leads performances with the Edmonton Symphony, and a special festival of contemporary and genre-bending music with the Indianapolis Symphony, the InFusion Music Fest. He also leads the world premiere of Shalimar the Clown in June 2016 with the Opera Theatre of Saint Louis.
