Greater Buffalo Youth Orchestra to Have New Conductor
The Greater Buffalo Youth Orchestra will have a new person on the podium when longtime Music Director and Conductor Gerard Floriano steps down after the 2014-15 season.
“We’re so grateful to Dr. Floriano for his 24 years of dedication and service,” says Janet Mazzio, president of GBYO Board. An accomplished conductor in the orchestral, choral, and operatic arenas, Dr. Floriano will be missed, Mazzio says. “At the same time, we look forward to searching for a new conductor to carry on the orchestra’s tradition of excellence,” she added. The search is already underway.
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.
