Greater Buffalo Youth Orchestra announces new Music Director
The Youth Orchestra Foundation of Buffalo is pleased to announce the appointment of Stefan Sanders to the position of Music Director for the Greater Buffalo Youth Orchestra.
"The GBYO is very pleased to have Stefan Sanders as its new Music Director and Conductor," said Kevin Szczepanski, President of the GBYO Board of Directors. "We're confident that Stefan's vision and conducting talent will give our students excellent musical training and invaluable performance experience," he said."
Mr. Sanders is the Associate Conductor of the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra. He also serves as the Music Director for the Round Rock Symphony (TX) where he is attracting much praise for innovative programming, new venues and collaborations with local arts organizations, attracting broader audiences and redefining the orchestra’s role in its community. Past positions have included Assistant Conductor for the Austin Symphony Orchestra, Music Director of the University Orchestra at the University of Texas at Austin and Apprentice Conductor of the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra.
The Greater Buffalo Youth Orchestras make possible a unique performance opportunity for talented young Western New York musicians. The GBYO and GBYSO offer these musicians a chance to experience the discipline and rewards of preparing and performing advanced repertoires; the Foundation exists to facilitate this experience for young people.
The Foundation expects each student musician's continued participation in other music programs, especially school orchestras and ensembles, as these programs are a vital component to the success and quality of the Greater Buffalo Youth Orchestras and the cultural life of the community.
