WAM June 4-5 Peter Gardner
Peter Gardner came here a wee Welsh lad, hoping to play violin in the local amateur St. John’s orchestra.
Forty years later, Peter retires from the positon of Artistic Director of the Newfoundland Symphony Orchestra. The NSO has a resident string quartet, then there’s the Newfoundland Symphony Youth Orchestra. And the Philharmonic Choir. But he is far from retiring from music. He’s still involved with Festival 500, for instance.
