Jung-Ho Pak
Symphony Artistic Director & Conductor

Because Cape Symphony Artistic Director & Conductor Jung-Ho Pak has worked with world-class artists like Yo-Yo Ma and James Taylor, and has conducted orchestras around the world, it’s hard to imagine him in a high school rock band. He’ll agree the band wasn’t very good, but it was part of his foray into music. Initially coerced into piano lessons, Jung-Ho eventually picked up the clarinet. When a generous band instructor gave him the chance to conduct, it ignited his true passion.

“If it wasn’t for the public school band program, I wouldn’t be a musician today,” says Jung-Ho. That’s why he’s been so committed to Cape Symphony education programs like Link Up and the Young People’s Concert since joining the organization in 2007.

He loves the “warm and enthusiastic” audiences here and says, “The Cape Symphony is truly a unique experience. We value joy and innovation, and you see it and feel it in our performances. When I conduct here, I’m seeing a community come together and share love.” For the Masterpiece Series, Jung-Ho presents the great classical works in unexpected and dramatic ways, and brings his sense of fun to the Pops Series concerts.

Jung-Ho declares that one of his most audacious goals is to reach every single person on Cape Cod with the gift of beautiful music. “As artists, we have a responsibility to encourage humanity in our society. I do what I do to help make the world a better place. It’s not just about presenting Beethoven and Mozart; It’s about helping people connect with who they are and with each other.”
