Our History - Onondaga Civic Symphony Orchestra

Finding itself without a music director in the fall of 1997, the orchestra lined up guest conductors including Juan Francisco LaManna from SUNY Oswego and Nicholas Ross from Liverpool HS to fill the leadership gap.
After trial concerts, Mr. Ross was named music director and he led the orchestra for the next three years with Mr. LaManna continuing as guest conductor. Mr. Ross's resigned to pursue graduate studies in 2000 and the orchestra again lined up a series of guest conductors to fill the gap. Nicholas Ross 97-00
