Packed with fascination, charisma and affection for music, Maestro Peter Dabrowski is a conductor dedicated to his art. Including academics, college wide functions have continued to result in an extremely busy performance season. With the season in full swing, the Valley Symphony Orchestra (VSO) found time to host a holiday luncheon with their UTPA allies; dialogue focused on the University’s approaching construction.

“The New Fine Arts Auditorium at UTPA will be a great asset to our growing community” said; UTPA President Robert S. Nelsen. “Our University continues to develop within this fantastic community and building upon the University’s strengths helps our growing population of Liberal Arts students.”

“A Liberal Arts education is the base for all University studies and UTPA presents a wide number and range of programs to promote The Arts, Humanities and the exchange of ideas. Liberal Arts education provides the staying power, provides a foundation for continuous growth and improvement, and leads to the success that we set our sights on” commented; Dr. Dahlia Guerra, Dean of Arts & Humanities.

“The acoustics in the new space will be so phenomenal that someone sitting in the last row of the auditorium will feel like they are sitting on-stage. At this time we can only imagine how our students and musicians will feel performing in this new space” noted; Maestro Peter Dabrowski, VSO Music Conductor/Director.

Monica Folk, VSO Executive Director professed; “The University prides itself on hosting professional quality events that add value to the lives of students and enrich our community. They continue to be great partners to the VSO.”
