Welcome, Dr. Rebecca MacLeod!

GSYO Music Director Nate Beversluis will be on leave from Youth Orchestra for Fall 2016. This Fall, the Youth Orchestra will be led by Dr. Rebecca MacLeod, professor at the UNCG School of Music. She has been the conductor of the Tallahassee Symphony Youth Orchestra and continues to conduct many All-State Honors Orchestras across the country. We are fortunate to have her on board, and a very exciting Fall concert cycle is in the works! Nate Beversluis will return to conduct the Winter and Spring concert cycles.

Dr. MacLeod is nationally renowned for her scholarship on string education, serving as director of the string education program at UNCG and conducting the UNCG Sinfonia. MacLeod received her undergraduate degree from Duquesne University and her MME and PhD from Florida State University. She is a frequent guest conductor and clinician throughout the United States.
