Maestro Brings Passion for Music to Southern Maryland
|What does Southern Maryland have in common with Northern Italy? St. Mary's College of Maryland (SMCM) and its campus in Alba, Italy, share Jeffrey Silberschlag, world-renowned trumpeter and conductor.
Each spring, Silberschlag travels to the St. Mary's campus in Italy to co-direct the Alba Music Festival, performing 21 concerts in ten days. He returns periodically to Alba throughout the school year to serve as the director of academic and music programs there. Along with his teaching responsibilities at the St. Mary's campus in Southern Maryland, Silberschlag is the music director and conductor of the River Concert Series held there each summer.
