Matthew Savery — Music Director and Conductor Fresh on the heels of what has been called his “tour-de-force” Carnegie Hall debut in June of 2015, American conductor Matthew Savery enjoys an everexpanding reputation for his multi-faceted career as an electrifying performer, dedicated orchestra builder and charismatic teacher. Mr. Savery is currently serving as Music Director and Conductor of the Bozeman Symphony Orchestra and Symphonic Choir as well as the Wyoming Symphony Orchestra. Having collaborated with some of the most exciting artists of our time, such as Jon Nakamatsu, Alexander Markov, The Canadian Brass, Carol Wincenc, Roberto Diaz, Andres Cardenes, Ryan Anthony, Judith Ingolfsson, and many more, Matthew Savery’s career has brought him to orchestras throughout the United States, Europe and Canada. He has led performances with the Boise, Dayton, Fort Wayne, Long Island and Naples philharmonics, Indianapolis, East Texas, El Paso, Greater Bridgeport (16 performances), Greater Lansing, Lake St. Clair, New Haven, Quad City, Saginaw Bay, Sioux City, Springfield (MA, MO and OH), South Dakota and Virginia Symphony Orchestras, Missouri Chamber Orchestra, Cape May Music Festival, Canada’s Victoria Symphony, Italy’s Orchestra Sinfonica di Bari, Turkey’s Presidential Symphony Orchestra, and the National Symphony Orchestra of Ukraine. While at the University of Michigan, Matthew Savery was the founding Music Director of the University Campus Chamber Orchestra; subsequently, he served as Music Director of the Comic Opera Guild of Ann Arbor. Along with his regular duties with the Bozeman Symphony, where his innovative subscription, family and children’s programming earns consistent praise and sold-out houses, Matthew Savery has established an active commissioning program, bringing compelling new compositional voices to his orchestra and its audiences, among them: Kenneth Fuchs – Glacier (Concerto for Electric Guitar and Orchestra); Erik Santos – Karnak, the Mines of Desire, Sun Road (Five Symphonic Dances for Orchestra); Elodie Lauten – Symphony 2001; James M. Stephenson, III – Concertino and Fanfare for Orchestra; Lowell Liebermann – Concerto for Clarinet. During his years with the orchestra, Mr. Savery has also presided over a ten-fold rate of financial growth, while regularly attracting over 3% of Bozeman’s metropolitan population to its concerts. Matthew Savery offers Montana’s schools a “Conductor in Residency” program that has accounted for dozens of hours per school year. He is much in demand as guest lecturer and in-school clinician. Mr. Savery is a recipient of the Eugene and Sadie Power Award for the Performing Arts. In October 1998, he and the Bozeman Symphony Orchestra were the subjects of a special feature on “CBS Sunday Morning.” Since his appointment to the Wyoming Symphony Orchestra, Matthew Savery and his notable artistic and organizational skills have refocused the greater-Casper area’s attention on the orchestra with gratifying results, among them a dramatic elevation of the orchestra’s artistic achievement and the quality of its guest artists, a broadening of the scope of the performance repertoire, a 30% increase in attendance and a 35% increase in the budget. With enthusiastic board support, he has introduced children and family programming, the “Music on the Move” outreach program, and his “Conductor in Residency” program for the public schools. Of special pride to the entire organization was Maestro Savery’s development of the “Wyoming Symphony Orchestra Young Artist Competition”— the first of it’s kind in the State of Wyoming—geared towards both high school and college students. A native of Western Massachusetts, just “down the road” from the famed Tanglewood Music Festival, Matthew Savery graduated from the New England Conservatory of Music and received his Master of Music Degree from the University of Michigan, where he was the recipient of a Teaching Assistantship to the prestigious studio of Gustav Meier and to which he returned in 2001 and 2006 as a Visiting Guest Lecturer. In addition to Mr. Meier, his principal teachers have been Pascal Verrot and Frank Battisti. Matthew makes his home in Bozeman, Montana, with his wife Soprano Catherine Viscardi Savery, and their three year old son Adam.

A Letter from Maestro Matthew Savery

Dear Friends, Welcome, and Happy Holidays! Nothing serves to better get us into the spirit of the season than music, and we’re thrilled you chose to be with us today. We promise to fill you with the joy of the holidays and leave you humming your way out the door. For those of you who have attended one of our Collage performances in the past, you know what you’re in for. For those who haven’t, you’re about to witness one of the most unique and exciting concert presentations of your life. Strap on your seat belts because we’re going to whisk you though over 30 pieces of music featuring all kinds of different sized ensembles, all made up from within the extraordinary talent of our orchestra and choir members.  We begin the process of programming our Collage concerts over a year in advance. Members of our ensembles are invited to submit ideas and welcomed to submit any and every kind of idea they can come up with regardless of how serious or whacky. When the deadline for submissions arrives, I begin to sort through and rank them (there are typically 80 to 100). Once Jon Harney and I have selected works for the full orchestra and choir, I begin to put together the complicated puzzle that will be the final program, focusing on two main issues; diversity and transitions (from one piece to another).  Immediately upon announcing the program, our musicians get to work preparing. They will all have at least two coachings with me, and many more rehearsals on their own. Simultaneously I begin having meetings with our masterful lighting designer Tom Watson, and we start sorting through the complicated stage and lighting changes that provide the seamless transitions needed for the performance, and the gorgeous lighting design that will make for a stunning visual presentation.  It’s always a great joy for me to show off the various talented people that make up the Bozeman Symphony Orchestra and Symphonic Choir, and the Collage helps us all get a look at them through a microscope. We are tremendously lucky to live in such a beautiful place and be surrounded by such an artistically rich community of musicians. I’m proud to be associated with each and every one, and even more proud to have the chance to bring them to your attention. We hope you enjoy this very special performance, and from all of us we wish you and yours a very happy holiday season and fruitful New Year.  Cheers,

Matthew Savery Music Director and Conductor

The Underwriters We are fortunate to live in the beauty of the valleys and mountains that surround us. We are doubly blessed to have in our small community the magnificent music brought to us by the Bozeman Symphony Orchestra and Choir. This remarkable achievement is due to the unusual number of highly talented musicians living among us, and to their selfless dedication to the orchestra and choir. We all benefit in some way from our orchestra and choir. Those who hear them benefit the most, but all of us benefit from the way they enrich the entire community. We, in turn, owe our orchestra and choir our generous and continuing support. For this reason, our Underwriters have committed to contributing a minimum of $1,200 to the Bozeman Symphony this year (the equivalent of $100 each month, exclusive of tickets or other benefits) and, if circumstances permit, in future years as well. Please join the Bozeman Symphony Society in thanking the Underwriters for their ongoing commitment to the Symphony and its wellbeing, and consider becoming a member of our Underwriters Group to help provide a stable and secure base of funding for our orchestra for years to come. Please contact us at 585-9774 for information about becoming an Underwriter.

Tuning into the Orchestra: Sandy Osborne, Soprano

Soprano Sandy Osborne started singing choral music in the 5th grade when a friend asked her to come sing with the Episcopal Church Choir. She has never really left choral singing and has continued to sing in school, college and community choirs. She has been with the Bozeman Symphonic Choir for close to 20 years. She has found choral singing to be a family that builds community with one another. Fellow choir members support each another through ups and downs and more. Sandy works as a professor at Montana State University in Human Development and Family Science and part-time as a Chaplain at Bozeman Health Deaconess Hospital.
