Joe Accuardi-Gilliam guest conducts PWS

October 20, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm PDT

Joseph Accuardi-Gilliam

Dr. Chris Chapman has been our music director since 2015. This past summer he accepted a position as director of bands at Central Michigan University. Congrats, Chris!

That also means we need a new artistic director and conductor.

We held interviews over the summer and accepted five conductors to conduct one concert each as part of our audition process to replace Dr. Chapman.

First up is Dr. Joseph Accuardi-Gilliam! Joe is Associate Principal at Hudson’s Bay High School and Artistic Director/Conductor of Rose City Pride Bands. Joe has chosen an ambitious program containing works by David Maslanka, Leonard Bernstein and Julie Giroux, to name a few.
