Famous Conductor Visits SAS HS Band Students
Friday, December 16th, 2022: Band students and several other Syracuse Academy of Science high school atoms had the pleasure of meeting composer Sean O’Loughlin. Sean is the Principal Pops Conductor of the Victoria Symphony and the Principal Pops Conductor of Symphoria in Syracuse. As a conductor, he has worked with the Boston Pops Orchestra, the San Francisco Symphony, the Chicago Symphony, and the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra, to name a few! Sean has also worked with famous musicians like Alicia Keys, Adele, Josh Groban, and Journey. Sean spoke to the students about how the path to becoming a successful composer was not linear and how he had to overcome challenges and setbacks before he got to where he is today.
It was a very motivational speech for our atoms, and the band students were happy to meet someone they aspire to be!
