Our new Youth Orchestra Conductor is Luca Antonucci!
After a nationwide search involving the PVS board, staff, artistic staff, youth orchestra members and youth orchestra parents, the PVS has appointed Luca Antonucci as our new Youth Orchestra director and Assistant Conductor of the PVS Orchestra.
Luca is a second-year Masters student at the Hartt School, where he studies Orchestral Conducting with Edward Cumming. A native of Watertown, MA, Luca graduated from Amherst College in 2014 with a BA in Music. When not on the podium or in the library, Luca can be found pursuing his multifarious musical interests, which range from choral directing to Austro-Bohemian folk music, jazz, and free improvisation. In addition to teaching trumpet privately in the Hartford area, Luca is currently on the staff of the Rivers Summer Music Camp in Weston, MA, where he teaches an Improvisation course and directs the Wind Ensemble.
