ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — As a young classical music conductor in a town known more for Mickey Mouse than Mahler, the Orlando Philharmonic's Eric Jacobsen faces a double challenge: Live up to the promise of his youth and innovative background, and somehow discover the magic formula to lure young audiences to the concert hall.




Beginning his second year as music director of the Orlando Philharmonic, the 33-year-old Jacobsen this summer is leaving one of the three boundary-breaking ensembles in which he played cello and explored new directions in an art form that cherishes tradition.


Jacobsen says he's leaving the string quartet, Brooklyn Rider, so he can concentrate on conducting.


He co-founded Brooklyn Rider a decade ago with his brother and two classmates from the Juilliard School.
