Timothy Verville, Music Director and Conductor

Born in western Oklahoma, the award-winning Timothy Verville spent part of his youth growing up about as far as one can from the concert hall: on a farm where his family raised and trained show horses. Eventually, they moved to “the city” where he was exposed to music education in public schools. And from there, his interest and drive in creating and sharing music propelled him to stages and acclaim around the world.

Verville is a uniquely multifaceted and multi-talented conductor of the modern orchestral sphere. His unbound creativity, innovation, and desire to share the power of the arts unite in creating performances and musical experiences that engage and captivate audiences. His work is hailed as “awe-inspiring” and for “bringing down the house” (Atlanta Arts Scene.) He is praised for “finely focused conducting, (in which) the energy and pace of the music never sagged” (The Tulsa World.)

Verville’s international engagements include the inaugural Kyushu International Festival in Japan, the Kyushu Symphony Orchestra, the Hita Civic Orchestra, the Chikushi Jogakuen Philharmonic Orchestra, the Kyushu Philharmonic Orchestra, in Russia with the Far Eastern Symphony, Opera Panama, and the National Symphony Orchestra of Panama. In the U.S., his appearances include the Richmond Symphony Orchestra, Tucson Symphony Orchestra, West Virginia Symphony Orchestra, Columbus Indiana Philharmonic, Hendersonville Symphony, Signature Symphony (Tulsa), Symphonicity (Virginia Beach,) and the Southwest Michigan Symphony Orchestra.

As a leader of orchestras, he fosters growth in every organization he serves. In 2016, he was appointed Music Director and Conductor of the Georgia Symphony Orchestra. His focus on audience engagement and outreach has been recognized throughout the community and in the League of American Orchestra’s Symphony magazine. In 2023, the Georgia Secretary of State proclaimed him an Outstanding Georgia Citizen for his service. 

Through his imaginative and collaborative programming and visionary leadership, the Georgia Symphony has expanded its performance footprint and built bridges to underrepresented populations. His organizational partnerships foster a mission of inclusiveness, opportunity, and transformation. Collaborating with Girls Who Conduct, Verville created a fellowship for women conductors with the Georgia Symphony. A special partnership with Make a Wish Georgia fulfilled a young person’s wish to conduct an orchestra. Verville also designs the Georgia Symphony’s “Sensory Friendly” concerts, which are supported by the National Endowment for the Arts.

In Phoenix, he served from 2010 to 2017 as founding Artistic Director and Conductor of Arizona Pro Arte. His presentations of unique and highly anticipated collaborative events resulted in exponential organizational and audience growth. During his tenure, the orchestra grew to include a full classics season, a summer series, educational performances, a chamber music program, and a dance ensemble. He established a composer in residence and instituted an annual “Call for Scores” competition that received over a thousand applicants from forty countries.

In 2007, Verville began a relationship with the Boston Chamber Orchestra encompassing over a decade of music-making. First performing as an instrumentalist in the orchestra, he was invited to become Associate Conductor and later Principal Guest Conductor. He toured internationally with the ensemble and recorded music for their first CD release.

Additional previous engagements include Music Director and Conductor of the North Valley Chamber Orchestra (AZ), Scottsdale Baroque Orchestra (AZ), and Conductor of the Pollard Theatre (OK).

With a varied background, his musical interests extend beyond the classical canon. For many years you were just as likely to find him on stage performing classics, in the pit conducting music theatre, or playing electric bass in a blues or rock band. He has performed on orchestral and commercial recordings for regional airplay and worldwide releases. 

Additionally, Verville occasionally composes and has had several premieres in the U.S. His Requiem Americano received an honorable mention in the American Prize for Composition. The collaborative work Liminal: an Atlanta Concerto for Amplified Looping Cello and Orchestra is a genre-blending piece co-written with Okorie “OkCello” Johnson. His creative output includes choral and symphonic works, electronic music, and background tracks for a video game.

Verville regularly commissions and conducts regional, national, and world premiere compositions ranging from operatic and symphonic to dance music. He has counseled young and emerging composers and worked with the Tucson Symphony’s Young Composers Project.

Also an award winner in the American Prize for Orchestral Performance, Verville was mentored by esteemed conductors Bruce Hangen, Timothy Russell, and James DePreist. He performed in masterclasses with David Effron, Markand Thakar, and Neil Varon. At the renowned Monteux School and Music Festival, he was selected as an orchestral assistant while studying with Michael Jinbo. Verville earned degrees in music from the Boston Conservatory, the University of Oklahoma, and Arizona State University.

Nathaniel F. Parker​, Associate Conductor, Dr. Bobbie Bailey GYSO Artistic Director & GYSO Symphony Director​

A talented and versatile musician, Nathaniel F. Parker has conducted orchestras in the United States, Peru, Russia, Poland, England, and the Czech Republic. Equally at home working with professionals and training future generations of musicians, Dr. Parker is Director of Orchestral Studies at the Kennesaw State University School of Music—serving as Music Director and Conductor of the Kennesaw State University Symphony Orchestra and Conductor of the Kennesaw State University Opera Program—and Associate Conductor of the Georgia Symphony Orchestra. His recent guest conducting engagements include appearances with the Jackson Symphony Orchestra (Michigan), the Connecticut Music Educators Association (CMEA) All-State Orchestra, the Fulton County High School Honor Orchestra (Georgia), and the Georgia Music Educators Association (GMEA) District 9 High School Honor Orchestra.

Dr. Parker is the recipient of numerous honors, awards, and scholarships. He was named a finalist for a Conducting Fellowship with the New World Symphony, a semi-finalist for a Conducting Fellowship at Tanglewood, and a Candidate for the Respighi Prize in Conducting; he also received a Citation of Excellence in Teaching from the Pennsylvania Music Educators Association. An active scholar, Dr. Parker’s writings have been published by the Conductors Guild and the College Orchestra Directors Association (CODA). He has presented research at the College Orchestra Directors Association’s national and international conferences and is Editor of the Journal of the Conductors Guild.

Dr. Parker has served as Music Director and Conductor of the Concert Orchestra and faculty at New England Music Camp (Maine), and Interim Music Director and Conductor of the Georgia Youth Symphony Orchestra’s (GYSO) Symphony and Camerata orchestras. Before relocating to Georgia, he was Director of Orchestral Activities and Assistant Professor of Music at Marywood University (Pennsylvania) where he was Music Director and Conductor of the Marywood University Orchestra and taught courses in conducting, instrumental methods, musicology, and analytical techniques. Other previous positions include Associate Conductor and Production Manager of the Jackson Symphony Orchestra (Michigan), Music Director and Conductor of the Jackson Youth Symphony Orchestra, Director of the Jackson Symphony Orchestra Community Music School, Graduate Conducting Intern at Michigan State University, Music Director and Conductor of the Mason Orchestral Society’s Community Orchestra and Youth Symphony (Michigan), Assistant Director of Music at Xaverian High School (New York), Conductor of the New Music Festival of Sandusky Orchestra (Ohio), and Graduate Assistant Conductor and Teaching Assistant at Bowling Green State University (Ohio).

Parker earned a Doctor of Musical Arts in Orchestral Conducting from Michigan State University, where his primary instructors were Leon Gregorian and Raphael Jiménez. During his time at MSU he regularly appeared with all the university orchestras and focused his doctoral research on Leonard Bernstein, specifically the composer’s Symphony No. 2, “The Age of Anxiety.” He earned a Master of Music in Orchestral Conducting from Bowling Green State University, where he studied with Emily Freeman Brown. His other conducting mentors include Stephen Osmond, Gary W. Hill, and Timothy Russell. In addition to his training in academia, Dr. Parker participated in numerous conducting master classes and workshops, conducting orchestras under the tutelage of nationally and internationally renowned conductors and conducting pedagogues including Christoph Eschenbach, George Hurst, Arthur Fagen, Markand Thakar, Mark Gibson, David Itkin, and Paul Vermel. Parker began his collegiate education at Arizona State University, where he studied bassoon with Jeffrey G. Lyman and graduated magna cum laude with a Bachelor of Music in Bassoon Performance.

Nat resides in Kennesaw with his wife, Melody, their son, Jacob, and their dog, Sammy.

Bryan Black, JG Morgan GSO Chorus Director

Bryan Black has worked as a conductor, educator, church musician and arts advocate since moving to Atlanta in 1994. He first trained as an organist and pianist at the undergraduate level (BM, Samford University,) then followed a passion for choral music and conducting at the graduate level (MM, Florida State). While at FSU he was deeply influenced by Rodney Eichenberger – the internationally regarded pedagogue and conductor. Bryan also holds the “Certificate of German” granted by the Goethe-Institute in Berlin. As a church musician, Black served the 4,200 member First United Methodist Church of Marietta as Director of Music from 2003-2017. Previous church appointments have included work with the 1996 “Celebrate Faith and Arts” Olympic event and an invitational choir festival tour to Kristiansand, Norway.

Black was invited by Michael Alexander to form the GSO Chorus in 2007. Since that time it has performed masterworks such as Orff’s Carmina Burana, Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony, Poulenc’s Gloria, Bach’s Magnificat, Walton’s Belshazzar’s Feast and Vaughan William’s Sea Symphony. The chorus now numbers some 90 voices and draws talented professional and amateur singers from across the area.

In 2012, the GSO Chamber Chorus made its first international tour to Spain under his direction.For ten years Black conducted The DeKalb Choral Guild, a community chorus based in Tucker. Over this time the choir tripled in size, made tours of Germany, Italy and the Czech Republic, appeared three times at the Piccolo Spoleto festival in Charleston, performed for the Georgia ACDA state convention and released its first professional recording. In the late ‘90s, Black sang with the ASO Chorus and Chamber Chorus – including Mr. Shaw’s final performance of Bach’s B-minor Mass in Carnegie Hall. During this time he also taught on the faculty of Georgia State University and was a visiting conductor at the Candler School of Theology at Emory University. For his contributions to the city’s cultural life he was named a “Lexus Leader in the Arts” by Atlanta Public Broadcasting in 2003.

After a successful musical project with the Atlanta Goethe-Institute (Hugo Distler’s Totentanz), Bryan was awarded a cultural ambassadorship in 2004 which allowed him to attend an intensive course offered in Weimar, Germany. He served as president of the American Choral Director’s Association (ACDA) in Georgia and assisted John Rutter as organizer for a conductor’s honor chorus during the 2013 ACDA National Conference.

Highlights from recent seasons include choral masterworks with the Georgia Symphony, being featured on a GSO Jazz! performance at the Strand Theatre, singing in a sold-out concert of music from the video game “Zelda,” and presenting a historic regional premiere of American music.

Comprised of accomplished vocalists from the greater metropolitan area, performances have included Mahler’s Second Symphony, Vaughan Williams’ Sea Symphony, Orff’s Carmina Burana, Haydn’s Creation, and Verdi’s Te Deum. The ensemble has also presented state, regional, and world premieres.
