“Holy Sch-nikes”, I thought to myself when I first heard that Alexander Prior would be joining the Seattle Symphony in his first professional assignment, as The Chairman’s Fellow, Assistant to Guest Conductors.
Why, might you ask, am I so surprised? Only just that, this particular British musical prodigy happens to be 17 years old! Can you believe it?  Assigned his first professional post, half of my age, yet conducting some of the world’s most prestigious Symphonies. How can that be? I’m not exactly sure, but it’s pretty cool.

Does he conduct? Yep.

Does he compose? Yep.

Does he play? Yep, yep, and yep.

No need to be intimidated…

The arts are important. Support and embrace them. Go to a Symphony, enjoy some art, enrich your spirit.

In Alex’s words: “It’s energy, it’s love of life, love of nature, love of people, being happy, having wide eyes and looking at how beautiful the world is.”

Go Junior Go!
