My MYO Story

As Music Director, I am always excited by the MYO experience, in rehearsal and in concert.  The oboe sounds the “A”, the Nassau Principal Orchestra tunes and then, the downbeat.  The musicians of the orchestra express, embrace and explore the wonderful dramas of composers such as Beethoven, Dvořák, Mahler, Gershwin, Shostakovich and Berlioz. These experiences leave an indelible musical mark that former MYO players tell me lasts for years.  I look forward to every moment with these talented young musicians.
