Evan Feldman

Evan Feldman is delighted to join the GSO for the 2017-2018 season, where he will lead the GSO’s educational concert series and annual holiday programs, and conduct the Greensboro Symphony Youth Orchestra.

An Associate Professor of Music at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Evan conducts the UNC Wind Ensemble and teaches courses in conducting and music education. He also directs the Triangle Wind Ensemble, the Greensboro Concert Band, and is frequently invited to guest conduct the Chapel Hill Philharmonia.

Evan is an active guest conductor, clinician, and adjudicator both nationally and internationally, with recent engagements in Romania, Belgium, Spain, Switzerland, and Tanzania, as well as all-state, all-district, and all-county honor bands throughout the United States. He has been described as “…the real thing – a conductor with evident ensemble-building skills who knows his way around the podium…”

Evan is passionate about music education and enjoys engaging audiences by giving them a peek into the rehearsal process with his innovative demonstrations that ‘decompose’ and ‘recompose’ the music. He is also the author of the first online class dedicated to teaching conducting and rehearsal technique. Over 20,000 people have enrolled in the free course through Coursera.org. His textbook, Instrumental Music Education, has been adopted by university music education programs throughout the country as one of the training manuals for tomorrow’s music teachers.

He lives in Durham with his amazing scuba diving wife, Leah, and their supernaturally cute and friendly dog, Sampson.
