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.

Mara’s Music Mix for the Weekend of October 4-6

It's been more than four decades since hundreds of thousands of young people flocked to two auto race tracks in Georgia to witness the South's first rock music festivals. 

The first Atlanta International Pop Festival at Atlanta Motor Speedway in Hampton, the second Atlanta International Pop Festival at Middle Georgia Raceway in Byron; and then the Texas International Pop Festival outside Dallas, held in the summers of 1969 and 1970, were organized by Alex Cooley--an individual now well-known for his long career as a successful music promoter in Atlanta. 

Retired Georgia State professor Dr. Wayne Daniel has spent decades learning about that time. He's collected recordings and other artifacts of Atlanta's country and gospel heritage. He's also written numerous articles on the topic and one book, Pickin' on Peachtree - A History of Country Music in Atlanta, Georgia.
