He was also the Assistant Director of the Cleveland Youth Wind Symphony for five years, touring internationally in Ireland, Scotland, England, France, New Zealand, and Australia.

He has performed with many professional orchestras including the Williamsport Symphony Orchestra, Cleveland Orchestra, Canton Symphony, Charleston Symphony (SC), Penn’s Woods Festival Orchestra and the North Arkansas Symphony. He has been a featured soloist with the Billtown Brass, North Arkansas Symphony, Case Symphonic Winds, Cleveland Youth Wind Symphony, Brass Band of the Western Reserve, and the University of Arkansas Wind Ensemble.

The WSYO is intended for high school students. However, local college students who do not have access to a school orchestra are also invited to audition. Younger students are also invited to audition and may be accepted based on their teachers’ recommendations and WSYO need. It is expected that WSYO members will also be active participants in their schools’ music programs. Tuition is $85 for the year (recommended), or $45 per semester (fall concert + January or January + winter concert) if extenuating circumstances prevent full-year participation. SCHOLARSHIPS AVAILABLE! Contact Becky Ciabattari at rciab @ williamsportsymphony.org for more information.
