A Senior Fulbright Fellow, an International Artistic Ambassador with the U.S. State Department, and a two-time winner of the International Opera Conductors’ Competition in the Czech Republic, he has also appeared as a guest conductor with such orchestras as the Oklahoma City Philharmonic, the Woodstock Chamber Orchestra, and the Western New York Chamber Orchestra.
