Have you always dreamed of becoming a professional conductor?
Your dream may become a reality! GDYO will be holding a raffle to choose one lucky guest conductor who will be featured on our Holiday Magic concert. The chosen conductor will receive a mini-conducting lesson with Maestro Richard Giangiulio and the opportunity to take the podium in front of hundreds of adoring fans! Raffle tickets will be sold in the Meyerson lobby before the concert, and the lucky winner will be drawn just before intermission. The winner also gets to take home their baton as a memorial of their grand performance (with pictures to follow, of course)!
