Meet the Orchestra

Under the direction of Maestro Luis Biava, the New Albany Symphony Orchestra performs an annual concert series at the McCoy Center for the Arts in New Albany, Ohio. The orchestra is comprised of community and student musicians and a core group of professionals that serve as mentors to our student performers. In addition to performing, NASO provides opportunities for the students and community of New Albany and its surrounding areas to deepen its appreciation for the arts through educational outreach with guest artists, and collaborations with area arts organizations.
