"It's very exciting to have the opportunity to encourage and develop the talents of these young musicians in an organization like the Capital Youth Symphony,” said Lund. “I am eager to uphold the traditions of this organization, and it is a privilege to begin a new chapter in its history - one focused on musical excellence and in the enjoyment of its students, their parents and the community."
