EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT) — The second Music Director Finalist, Scott Seaton, is scheduled to conduct the Evansville Philharmonic Orchestra on Saturday evening at 7, at the Victory Theatre.

This season brings five conductors, narrowed down from over 200 applicants, to audition for the next Evansville Philharmonic Orchestra Music Director.

Seaton, originally from Nashville, earned degrees from the Université de Montréal, the New England Conservatory, and Vanderbilt University.

He has also studied at Tanglewood and the National Conducting Institute sponsored by the National Symphony Orchestra.

Seaton has been praised for possessing “finesse, clarity, and precision” by the Luxembourg Times and has left audiences “breathless” according to Entertainment News Northwest.

He is in his fourth season as Music Director of the North State Symphony in Northern California where he has garnered acclaim for his dynamic performances, innovative programming, and community and youth outreach.

Elliott has enjoyed the honor of performing for cellist Yo-Yo Ma and also performing alongside recording artist Jennifer Hudson.

The evening’s concert begins with “Ash,” written by composer Michael Torke, which includes a unique and intriguing fusion of classical and pop music with a vibrant and contemporary sound.

Beethoven’s dynamic “Symphony No. 4” concludes the concert program.
