About Dylan Madoux
Conductor and Keyboardist Dylan Madoux is currently pursing his graduate degree (MM) at Oklahoma City University where he is studying Orchestral Conducting with Professor Jeffrey Grogan. He is also pursuing studies in harpsichord and historical continuo with Anastasia Abu Bakar. He earned his undergraduate degree (BME) at the University of Oklahoma.
Dylan has had success as a conductor and is known for his unique "vignette-style" programming where he is able to masterfully capture the essence of a given time and place and present this pairing to the audience. He currently serves as Music Director of the Vitam Musica Chamber Orchestra which specializes in presenting the Oklahoma community with underrepresented repertoire. Leading the Vitam Musica Chamber Orchestra in partial collaboration with the University of Oklahoma School of Dance, Dylan premiered an original ballet-- “Bloch to Bach—A Tour de Force” at their debut performance in Spring 2019. Since then, he has lead the Vitam Musica Chamber Orchestra in numerous concerts featuring a wide range of soloists and repertoire.
Dylan has had the opportunity to participate in several conducting workshops and festivals. In 2019, he attended, as a Fellow, the South Carolina Conductor’s Institute. Here he had the opportunity to conduct the Aiken Symphony Orchestra in concert and was coached by Donald Portnoy, Peter Jaffe, and Victoria Bond. In 2021, he will attend the International Conductor's Workshop & Festival with Larry Rachleff and Don Schleicher.
As of Fall 2020, Dylan also serves as an Apprentice Conductor at the Oklahoma City Philharmonic and an Assistant Conductor at Oklahoma Youth Orchestras. In the summer of 2021, Dylan had the opportunity to conduct and work with the Boise Baroque Orchestra and Maestro Robert Franz during their workshop and festival.
Dylan’s interests that lie outside of conducting include both scholarly research and harpsichord/historical continuo. Dylan has played continuo in Oklahoma City University's Early Music Ensemble, the Boise Baroque Orchestra, and various other recital and concert settings.
