New Premier Orchestra Conductor for 2020 Season

Ryan Murray

I am thrilled and honored to be joining the SYS team. As a young musician growing up in Sacramento, I was one of the many players to be inspired by my time in SYS. I am really excited to join the team and continue the fantastic work that has been done by Maestro Neumann.  I look forward to getting to know all of the SYS community and to all of the great music we will make together!
