Maurice and Gregory Hines are world-famous, award-winning dancers. Maurice—the elder brother—is known for his Broadway performances in Guys & Dolls, Sophisticated Ladies, and many others.

He also appeared alongside his brother in Frances Ford Coppola’s film The Cotton Club as a pair of… what else? tap dancers.

Gregory’s innovative improvisational tapping as well as his choreography and acting won him a long list of Tony’s, Emmy’s and other awards before he passed away in 2003.

Joseph Young

The Atlanta Symphony Orchestra has had a vacant Assistant Conductor position since 2009. It’s a job where many young conductors make a name for themselves.

After several rounds of auditions, the ASO has selected Joseph Young – a truly “young” man of only 31.

Maestro Young was born in Charleston and graduated from the University of South Carolina in 2004 and the Peabody Conservatory in 2009.

He’s also a trumpet player, music educator and former resident conductor of the Phoenix Symphony.
