See bio above
The Indian Hill Music Youth Orchestra (formerly Nashoba Youth Orchestra at Indian Hill Music) was founded through the Parish Center for the Arts in Westford, Massachusetts as The Nashoba Youth Orchestra in 2004 by a dedicated group of professional musicians, music educators, performers, and parents who shared a common vision for a high-quality youth orchestra located in the Nashoba Valley region which would serve the needs of motivated musicians throughout the region. After ten successful years as an independent youth orchestra, in 2014, the orchestra became a part of IHM’s program offerings.
