About Dr. Stephen Tucker, Conductor
In his fourteenth year as the conductor of the UCI Symphony, Dr. Stephen Tucker continues to build the orchestra’s repertoire as well as its visibility in the Orange County and the larger California communities. Along with his orchestral duties, Dr. Tucker is an Associate Professor in the Claire Trevor School of the Arts’ Music Department, teaching a variety of courses. In addition, he collaborates with the Dance department and leads the orchestra in outreach efforts in the community, most notably, the adoption and nurturing of the music program at Santa Ana High School.
Before joining the faculty at UCI, Dr. Tucker did academic work at UCLA, the Vienna Conservatory in Austria, at the International Conductors’ Institute, and Thayer Conservatory of Music. He holds a Doctor of Musical Arts degree from UCLA where he served as Assistant Conductor of Opera UCLA and conductor of that university’s Musical Theatre Workshop. Prior to that, he held positions as Music Director of the Neumark Ensemble, a Southern California chamber orchestra and chorale, and the Southern California Young Artists’ Symphony, leading numerous concert performances with both organizations.
Maestro Tucker’s professional experience has taken him to Taipei, Taiwan, Bratislava, Slovakia, Budapest, Hungary, Avery Fisher Hall, New York, Canada, and the Caribbean.
