Artistic Director's Welcome

Welcome to MYSO! I am so excited for this new season. As the Director of Education with the Mississippi Symphony Orchestra, I have been associated with the programs of MYSO and its musicians for many years. This year as both the Artistic Director and conductor of the advanced orchestra, I am looking forward to introducing exciting new repertoire, new ideas, and new challenges for the very talented musicians of this fine organization. I look forward to sharing my knowledge and experience and hopefully inspire a lifelong love of orchestral music.
