A compelling and versatile musician spotlighted in Esquire Magazine as a rising star that is “redefining classical music,” Yaniv Segal has appeared on stages around the world as an actor, singer, violinist, violist, and conductor. As the Acting Assistant Conductor of the Detroit Symphony, he leads the orchestra in several community, education and family concerts in 2018-19. Between 2014-17, Yaniv was the Assistant Conductor to Andrey Boreyko and the Naples Philharmonic and directed the Naples Philharmonic Youth Orchestra. He led the Naples Philharmonic in nearly twenty different programs per year including a concert with legendary violinist Itzhak Perlman. In 2005, Yaniv co-created the Chelsea Symphony to provide performance and professional development opportunities for young instrumentalists, composers, and conductors. The Chelsea Symphony has performed dozens of world premieres alongside standard repertoire in the Metropolitan New York area, and can be frequently seen on the Amazon Prime series Mozart in the Jungle.
