“One of the greatest joys I have as a staff conductor with the Philharmonic is joining them on the road. I look forward to our annual treks around the region, with a wonderful holiday program in tow. The dazzling soprano Stephanie Carlson will be again traveling northeast Indiana with us,” said the Philharmonic’s Associate Conductor Caleb Young.

This will be Carlson’s second year joining the Philharmonic. She has appeared on operatic stages across the United States and Europe and performed leading roles in more than 15 operas. She currently serves as the director of development and education for Heartland Sings.
