Steven Jarvi

Jarvi_Steven.jpgDescribed as an “eloquent and decisive” conductor by the Wall Street Journal and praised for his “uncommonly expressive and detailed” performances by the Miami Herald, Steven Jarvi is recognized as a dynamic talent with an equal passion for the concert hall and the opera house. Jarvi returns to the Kansas City Symphony for his third season as Associate Conductor and was a recent winner of the Bruno Walter Memorial Foundation Award. He came to Kansas City after spending several years as the Conducting Fellow with Michael Tilson Thomas and the New World Symphony in Miami Beach and as an Associate Conductor for the New York City Opera at Lincoln Center.

As Associate Conductor, Jarvi leads the Kansas City Symphony’s Family, Young People’s, Pops and Chamber Players concerts along with selected classical performances throughout the season. A frequent performer with the New World Symphony, Steven has shared subscription concerts in Miami with Michael Tilson Thomas, Roberto Abbado, Marin Alsop, Mark Wigglesworth and Alasdair Neale, conducted on the NWS Charles Ives: In Context Festival and developed and lead the orchestra’s popular Concerts for Kids and Symphony with a Splash concerts. Jarvi has also served as a cover conductor for the Los Angeles Philharmonic, and conducted the Helsinki Philharmonic as a competitor in the 3rd Sibelius International Conducting Competition in Helsinki, Finland.

Jarvi was the first ever conductor invited to be a member of the Domingo-Cafritz Young Artist Program at the Kennedy Center’s Washington National Opera, a position he was personally selected for by Plácido Domingo.
