Seattle Symphony is pleased to welcome 17-year-old conductor Alexander Prior to an unprecedented Chairman’s Fellow position, Assistant to the Guest Conductors.

Oh, and yeah, he is a composer too. Prior’s website.

BUT … can he make an oboe reed? Huh? Huh?

Now I’m tired. I need a nap before tonight’s concert. I’m guessing a seventeen year old doesn’t need a nap. I do. I am not seventeen.
