GNSO Summer Pops at Downing – CHANGE OF VENUE

Please be advised that due to predictions of very high temperatures, humidity, and chances of thunderstorms, the GNSO Summer Pops Concert will now take place at MOUNT SAINT MARY COLLEGE, AQUINAS HALL, rather than at Downing Park.

The concert will start at 4 PM on Saturday July 30, and admission is still FREE.  :-)  We hope you are all planning to join us as our newly appointed conductor, Russell Ger, leads us on a “Whirlwind Tour of Europe”!  And the children will still be able to conduct the orchestra!!

Our musicians appreciate your attendance and support, and our new conductor is excited to start our new season off with a great program for your enjoyment!!

Newburgh Symphony Names Russell Ger Music Director After Two-Year Search

Russell Ger has been selected as the new Music Director of the GNSO after an extensive two-year search led by a musician search committee headed by Orchestra Manager Greg Phillips.  The final decision by the Board of Directors included input from the search committee, musician and audience ratings, and results of 90-minute interviews of each candidate by a Board committee.

Board president John Bliss said that “We owe a tremendous debt of thanks to the four Maestros — Mr. Ger, Harvey Felder, David Bernard and Michael Avagliano — for leading one of the most exciting seasons in the history of the GNSO.  Their professionalism was evident in their rapport with both the musicians and the audiences, and the result was performances that stirred the heart and soul.
