Pablo Rus Broseta


Pablo Rus Broseta is Associate Conductor of the Seattle Symphony and Music Director of the Jove Orquestra de la Generalitat Valenciana. He is rapidly building a wide-ranging repertoire from Handel to John Adams, with a focus on the great symphonic repertoire.

Paula Madrigal


Paula Nava Madrigal is a cellist and one of a small percentage of Latinx female conductors in the United States. In addition to conducting orchestras, she teaches classical music to immigrant youth, providing free lessons and instruments. Paula has long been committed to social justice and inclusion in music education. It is her deep belief that all children deserve to receive musical education, no matter their social, racial or economic situation.

Ballard Civic Orchestra

Ballard Civic Orchestra enhances community life by using music as a bridge to intercultural understanding in Seattle.  BCO offers classical music education, opportunities, and experiences, without charge, in diverse neighborhoods and venues citywide.  BCO is a multi-generational orchestra of professional musicians, talented volunteers, and enthusiastic music lovers who want to share their passion for music in a way that benefits their communities’ working families, young professionals, youth, and retirees. A special focus of the Ballard Civic Orchestra is under-served Latinx youth, their families, and communities.

Seattle World Youth Orchestra

The World Youth Orchestra (WYO) is the primary program of Young Strings Project Outreach (YSPO), whose mission is to enhance the lives of youth with limited means and limited access to classical music experiences and education in the Seattle area. The goals of the youth orchestra program are: 1) to provide instruction, without charge, to youth who wish to play a classical instrument and participate in a music ensemble and would not otherwise have the opportunity to do so; 2) to offer engaging opportunities for under-served inner-city and rural experience and learn about classical music.

Seattle Symphony

The Seattle Symphony is one of America’s leading symphony orchestras and is internationally acclaimed for its innovative programming and extensive recording history.
