Fellowship awarded to support work towards an MM in Orchestral Conducting at University of Michigan - Ann Arbor
YANIV SEGAL is a conductor, composer, and violinist. Already at Vassar College, where he earned his BA in music, he began to assemble musicians to play as an ensemble. After graduating from Vassar, Yaniv put the same skills to work creating a New York music cooperative, the Chelsea Symphony. By allowing members to train as soloists and conductors in exchange for playing regularly in the orchestra, the Chelsea Symphony has managed to perform some twenty concerts per season, free of charge, at a consistently high level. Yaniv completed a MM and DMA in orchestral conducting at the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor while concurrently earning a MM in music composition. He was born in New York to parents who emigrated from Poland and Israel. His parents are naturalized citizens and reside in Yonkers, NY.
