Prize-winning conductor and award-winning teacher Brian Stone has worked with professional orchestras in nine states and five countries, as well as students at the University of Delaware and elsewhere.
Brian began his musical career playing the saxophone in the public schools of Santa Monica. Later, he took up viola and piano, and started composing as well.
Stone is a graduate of Bennington College in Vermont, received a Master of Music degree and a Doctorate in conducting from the Peabody Conservatory.
Brian has roots in the North State area: his maternal grandfather’s family settled in Colusa County after the Civil War. His mother went to high school in Colusa and was “Miss Colusa County” in the 1957 Miss California Pageant. Brian’s father’s family emigrated from Vienna in 1940 and settled in Stockton.
