From Performer to Maestro: A Return to the BPO for Stefan Sanders


It takes a serious amount of knowledge to become a conductor of an orchestra. That’s why Maestro Stefan Sanders learned it from the inside out. He knew he wanted to be a conductor, but started as a Bass Trombone player in the Buffalo Philharmonic and waited for his time. When conductor, JoAnn Falletta, gave him the chance to conduct the BPO, he jumped on the opportunity. Since then, he’s become Director of the Round Rock Symphony in Texas and an Associate Conductor of the Buffalo Philharmonic. Listen to hear his story and recordings of the BPO.
