Pak’s “new vision” for classical music in San Diego is to create a joyous, emotional and dramatic musical experience for today’s audiences, an experience that attracts a whole new generation to classical music.
Jung-Ho Pak has careers as both a music director with a revolutionary vision of classical music and as a nationally acclaimed educator. In 2007, Pak began his tenure as artistic director and conductor of the Cape Cod Symphony Orchestra, one of the largest orchestras in Massachusetts (second only to the Boston Symphony Orchestra).
Pak was named music director emeritus of the New Haven Symphony Orchestra, one of the largest and historic orchestras in the New England region, in 2007 after completing his eighth season with them.
Pak strongly believes an orchestra belongs to its community, and has produced specific concerts for the Latino, Chinese, Korean, Indian, Jewish and African-American communities.
