A native of New Orleans, he holds degrees in composition from the University of New Orleans, Tulane University and the University of North Texas. 

Dr. Julia Mortyakova, chair of the music department at The W, also will be the featured artist performer on the program joining the orchestra for the “Phantasie in A Minor,” composed by Robert Schumann.

She has numerous recitals, recordings, appearances and presentations to her credit. Mortyakova earned her doctor of musical arts degree in piano performance from the University of Miami and her master of arts in music performance from New York University. She has bachelor’s degree in music with a double major in philosophy from Vanderbilt University.

The second half of the program will consist of Beethoven’s “Symphony No. 1 in C major.”  Dr. Michael Brown, music director of the Starkville Symphony, will conduct the program.
