About the Orchestra

 

The SBSO Chamber is designed to introduce music that is not ordinarily experienced in a large symphony orchestra concert setting. Chamber music bestows a smaller, more "intimate" sound which we invite our audiences to encounter and enjoy.

 

The SBSO was created as a project of the Saginaw Department of Parks and Recreation in 1935 and has performed an annual concert series ever since. It was incorporated as a separate nonprofit corporation in 1953. At this time it also became one of the 50 orchestras who were named charter members of the American Symphony Orchestra League.

 

The Orchestra is a fully-professional ensemble which draws its members from throughout Michigan. In addition to its classical concerts, the Orchestra has produced a wide variety of chamber, pops, educational and historical concerts, as well as opera, ballet and modern dance. Nearly 5,000 community performers, over half of whom are children, have shared the stage with the Orchestra in performances over the years.

 

The SBSO has established a proud legacy of providing quality musicianship, innovative programming and excellent educational experiences to the people of Mid-Michigan.

Myles Boothroyd is a Traverse City native and graduate teaching assistant at the Eastman School of music, where he is currently pursuing a Master of Music Degree in Saxophone Performance and Literature. He holds a Bachelor’s degree in Music Education with minors in Instrumental Music and Secondary Mathematics Education from Central Michigan University.

 

Boothroyd’s work as a performance artist has garnered him numerous accolades and awards in competitions across the country. He won the first annual CMU Delta Omicron Young Artist competition in 2010, then went on to take first prize in the CMU Patricia Nixon Woodwind Memorial Scholarship competition the following year. He was selected as one of six finalists in the collegiate solo competition at the 2012 North American Saxophone Alliance biennial conference in Tempe, AZ, and he was named the second-place national winner in the young artist division of the 2013 Music Teachers National Association conference in Anaheim, CA. This honor was awarded following first-place recognitions at both the state and divisional rounds of the 2012-2013 MTNA Young Artist competition. More recently, Boothroyd was named second-place national winner of the 2014 Vandoren Emerging Artist classical saxophone competition.

 

Along with his dedication to performance, Boothroyd remains active in musicological and scholarly work. He is a National Merit Finalist and Presser Scholar who has shared original research at national and international conferences, giving paper and poster presentations in Cincinnati, Lansing, Honolulu, Chicago, and Montreal. In March 2012, Boothroyd was recognized for the Best Student Paper Presentation at a College Music Society Conference in Chicago; furthermore, his research paper on Miles Davis and George Russell is published in the Fall 2010 issue of Nota Bene, Canadian Undergraduate Journal of Musicology.

 

Boothroyd’s teachers have included Chien-Kwan Lin, John Nichol, and Rob Smith. Following completion of his graduate degrees, he intends to pursue a career in collegiate education.
