Bio

Principal Conductor of the Patel Conservatory Youth Orchestra Program at the David A. Straz, Jr. Center for the Performing Arts, Stephen P Brown has shared his zeal for live classical music for over 30 years in concert halls, colleges, schools, community centers, nursing homes and churches throughout the USA, UK, Europe and Africa.

According to Kevin Coughlin, he has become “one of the most engaging conductors of our modern age,” and is a recipient of the Ricordi Conducting Prize and winner of the Alan J Kirby Choral Conducting Prize.

Brown has served as artistic and musical director for the Jubilee Symphony Orchestra, Medway Chamber Orchestra, Kentish Players Theatre, Cobham Church and the Jacksonville Chapel Concert Band, and also had the honor of being an associate student conductor for the Hallé and BBC Philharmonic Orchestras.

He continuously demonstrates an outstanding commitment and dedication to his craft through concerts, workshops, lectures, and master classes, alongside supporting the under-served such as blind, deaf and homeless populations.

Brown has conducted several premieres including Antonin Tucapsky's Triptychon, Martin Gaughan's Columba Aspexit and Jon Edwards' Dawn Mantras as part of the UK's Millennium Festival. His major conducting engagements have included the London Philharmonic Orchestra, the Griffin Orchestra of London and the Spotlites Theatre production of Into the Woods.

He refined his conducting proficiency with guidance from Bernard Keefe, Arthur Davison, Christopher Adey, George Hurst, Timothy Reynish, Philip Jones and Sir Georg Solti, and has also appeared on various major UK and US media networks including ABC and BBC TV & radio.

Brown is known for transforming ensembles and captivating audiences: “It’s almost as if the music is a tangible medium he is sculpting,” said Kathleen Haft, a musician who attends Brown’s concerts at every opportunity. “He has grace, poise, charm and humor.”
