Wes Kenny, Conductor

Wes Kenney is now in his sixteenth year as professor of music and director of orchestras at Colorado State University. He conducts the University Symphony Orchestra and Chamber Orchestra as well as Ralph Opera Program productions and teaches graduate conducting. Mr. Kenney has led the orchestra to many new milestones, including first-ever at CSU performances of Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring, Mahler symphonies No. 1 and 5, two Strauss tone poems, the Bartok Concerto for Orchestra, and the Bruckner Symphony No. 5. In 2014 he was named music director of the Denver Young Artists Orchestra—the premiere youth orchestra in the state of Colorado—and has taken that orchestra on tour through Italy, France, and Spain. This June, Mr. Kenney will take DYAO to on a 12-day concert tour of central Europe. DYAO is the current winner of the American Prize in performance in the Youth Orchestra Division.

Mr. Kenney is also currently in his 16th season as music director of the fully professional Fort Collins Symphony. In the summer of 2004, he was named to an additional post of music director of Opera Fort Collins, helping that organization establish a full season of three productions a year. Mr. Kenney was named the 2009 Outstanding Teacher by the Colorado American String Teachers Association. He was also awarded the Grand Prize in the summer 2007 Varna (Bulgaria) International Conducting Competition. He traveled back to Bulgaria in 2008 for concerts in Vidin and to conduct La Traviatain Stara Zagora.
