Jason Duckles, Eugene-Springfield Youth Symphony Conductor, 2010-2016
Jason Duckles conducted the Youth Symphony for five and a half years, and is preparing to move to Europe in early 2016. Jason brought the orchestra to a new and greater level of musicianship, and ESYO is grateful for his leadership. While in Oregon, he led an active life as a soloist, chamber musician, and conductor. He taught cello at Oregon State University and Willamette University. As a member of the Amelia Trio, Jason earned recognition from Strad Magazine and other music critics as a group that possesses outstanding "balance, tonal beauty, and teamwork". With performances at such prominent venues such as Carnegie Hall in New York City, Ravinia in Chicago, and the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C., the Amelia Trio has made its mark and impressed classical music enthusiasts. The American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP) presented the ensemble with its Award for Adventurous Programming. Jason was invited by NPR to be a part of its Residency Program, resulting in a week of live performances and interviews which reached an estimated 1.5 million listeners. He was awarded top prize in both the Concert Artists Guild International Competition and the Munich ARD International Competition. He has had the great pleasure of performing in concert with musicians such as Yo-Yo Ma, members of the Beaux Arts trio, and the Cleveland, Orion, Emerson, and Guarneri String Quartets. Jason can be heard on the recording labels Sony, Naxos, Channel Classics, Traditional Crossroads, and Cedille Records. We will miss Jason's incredible passion for our Youth Symphony and its musicians, and wish him well on his next musical adventure!
