In addition to serving as host of SymphonyCast, Alison Young hosts weekday mornings on Classical Minnesota Public Radio. She also hosts Classical MPR's live Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra broadcasts and American Public Media's annual St. Olaf Christmas Festival.
Before her career in radio, she enjoyed a successful career as a concert flutist. While an illness cut her performing career short, she made a vibrant artistic transition, making the natural move to broadcasting, becoming a host and producer. Young earned her bachelor's degree in music from the University of Southern California and a master's degree from the Cleveland Institute of Music.
