The Jefferson Exchange

Ashland Composer Celebrates Ukraine Performance

webster_young.jpg

Webster Young calls the Rogue Valley his home, but his work is heard all over the world.  Young is a composer of symphonic music, ballets, and operas. 

His Fifth Symphony was performed last summer in Ukraine, and the event is a subject of a documentary film coming soon to the Ashland library.  Web Young visits the studio once again (last in January 2017) to catch us up on his work.
