Nyack-based pianist Mike Holober has some travel in his future.
Also the artistic director of the Westchester Jazz Orchestra, he’s just been named to a two-year stint as associate guest conductor of Frankfurt Radio Big Band. That mean’s he’ll conduct and work as a composer/arranger on six concerts in 2012 and 2013, according to Emily Tabin, the orchestra’s executive director. Holober will continue his duties with the orchestra.
He’s got a lot going on – see what at http://westjazzorch.org/about_us_director_bios.htm.
The highly praised orchestra will have its first 2011-12 season performance Sept. 24.
