Richard McKay works with Greater Dallas Youth Orchestra
Richard McKay was invited to conduct the Greater Dallas Youth Orchestra’s Philharmonic Orchestra as a guest-clinician, and conducted works by Malcolm Arnold and Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky at rehearsal at Southern Methodist University’s Meadows School of the Arts.
Comprised of approximately 100 members, high school seniors or younger, the Philharmonic is a full symphony orchestra. The combination of strings, woodwinds, brass and percussion makes possible the performance of a wide variety of symphonic music. For some, the Philharmonic is an introduction to advanced orchestral literature. The Philharmonic performs three concerts annually with one of the performances being at the Meyerson Symphony Center.
