A Masterclass in Orchestral Music

Xaverian's music program, MAX, hosted premier conductor Mark Laycock as he taught a masterclass in orchestral music to our program’s students. 

Mr. Phil Lian ‘66, a member of Xaverian’s Board of Trustees, set up the experience for our young musicians, which included a three-day intensive with Mr. Laycock alongside professional players. The sessions came to a crescendo at Xaverian’s annual Spring Music Concert, where Mr. Laycock was a  “guest” conductor of the third movement of the Bach Brandenburg Concerto. 

Bravo, Clippers!
