Neighborhood Music School’s Greater New Haven Youth Orchestra has named its new conductor.
Thomas C. Duffy, professor of music and director of university bands at Yale University will succeed Netta Hadari, who served as conductor of the Youth Orchestra for the past five years, according to a release from the school.
“What an honor to be invited to be the next in a long line of distinguished conductors of the Greater New Haven Youth Orchestra,” Duffy said in the release. “For most of my life I have enjoyed conducting professional and academic orchestras and wind bands all over the world. But there is something special about the process of introducing pre-college musicians to the challenges and delights of performing major repertoire — Beethoven, Brahms, Stravinsky, Elgar, Britten and others — for the very first time.” MORE
