Considered a passionate and insightful musician, by Michael Tilson Thomas - the music director of the San Francisco Symphony and artistic director of the New World Symphony Orchestra, Yaniv Dinur began his conducting career at the age of 19 when he was invited to perform with the Israel Camerata Orchestra in Jerusalem, making him the youngest conductor ever invited to conduct an orchestra in Israel. Deemed a marvelous conductor by mentor Kurt Masur, Mr. Dinur is also a passionate lecturer and music educator and currently serves as director of orchestral activities at American University in Washington DC. Mr. Dinur considers it his mission to bring college students to the concert halls, and often meets with students in universities around the world and introduces them to classical music.
"Thanks to the Amarillo Symphony's national reputation, we were able to secure an astounding conductor on short notice," said Susan White, executive director of the Amarillo Symphony. "The audience is in for a great treat as we prepare for Intimate Evening with this dynamic young conductor."
