“Ladies and gentlemen, young Rhee is coming into his own. No. I’d say Rhee has arrived.”
Music Director and the founder of Camerata New Jersey, Maestro Ben Byung-Hyun Rhee has amassed quite a résumé and recognition throughout his career. He has served five years as Associate Conductor to the Nashville Symphony Orchestra, where he has led concerts with world renowned soloists like Emanuel Ax, Garrick Ohlsson, Itzhak Perlman, Glenn Dicterow, and the Los Angeles Guitar Quartet, to name a few.
Maestro Rhee’s innate ability to masterfully lead an orchestra has been acknowledged throughout the industry, and he is recognized as one of America’s most gifted young conductors. He was presented with the Bruno Walter Memorial Foundation Award, an annual program that selects only one conductor from a pool of nearly three hundred from all over the country. The League of American Symphony Orchestras presented Mr. Rhee in its National Preview of Conductors with the Jacksonville Symphony and the SYMPHONY magazine selected him as an emerging artist to watch.
