Born and raised in Adelaide, Bryan Griffiths was an enthusiastic participant in the Adelaide Youth Orchestras, South Australian Music Camp and the Department of Education music programs throughout his youth. After graduating from the Elder Conservatorium of Music in 2010 he joined the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra as a member of the horn section, before taking studies in conducting at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music.
Bryan’s passion for community and educational music has led him to direct a number of local ensembles, including the Adelaide Summer Orchestra, Burnside Symphony Orchestra, and the Adelaide Youth Wind Orchestra. He has also been invited to conduct the Adelaide Wind Orchestra, Adelaide Symphony Orchestra and teach and perform at the University of Santa Maria’s Festival Internacional de Inverno in Brazil.
Bryan looks forward to working with AdYO in their 2019 season, giving next-generation musicians the chance to learn the skills and experience the excitement of ensemble music-making.
