Adrian Symphony Orchestra: Music Director

I am so pleased and honored to be named Music Director of the Adrian Symphony Orchestra. During my week there in April, it was clear that this is a special organization made up of outstanding and passionate musicians and a dedicated and skilled staff. I was also struck by the fantastic and invested board of directors and the passionate community support the orchestra enjoys. I look forward to making music with the orchestra and continuing the work of making deep connections between the orchestra and the greater community.

We have a thrilling season planned and I’m particularly excited about the opening concert where we will showcase this great orchestra. With music selected to give every single member of the orchestra their opportunity to shine, our concert makes its way through some of the most popular and most beloved American works for orchestra. Even the tuba player gets his moment, with two short solos in “An American in Paris!” .
