Department of Music Senior Lecturer Doug Gately performed with the National Symphony Orchestra at the televised U.S. Capital Memorial Day Concert, hosted by Joe Mantegna and Gary Sinise on May 26. Guest artists and celebrities with the orchestra included Bryan Cranston, Jena Malone, Mary McCormack, Cynthia Erivo, Pitino Miller, Ruthie Ann Miles, Gary Le Vox, and BD Wong.

Gately also adjudicated performances throughout the month of May for Music In The Parks and Kings Dominion. This educational opportunity offers high school and middle school bands and orchestras a chance to perform. Groups throughout the Northeast and Southcentral United States come for assessment and compete for awards. They cap off their experience with a fun-filled day at the park.
