WELCOME CONDUCTOR Gary Liebst
“I think it is important to both inform and entertain when presenting concerts. My plan is to move our audience through all different genres of music from classical to jazz, modern to Broadway, and Baroque to movie music. There will truly be music that everyone will enjoy from Grieg, Bach, and Schubert to Andrew Lloyd Weber, George Gershwin, and John Williams”.
Conductor Gary Liebst directed his first community group in 1992 and has never stopped. He has been conducting college and community orchestras, concert bands and jazz ensembles for many years, most recently as the Director of Bands at Lone Star College North Harris. He served as the Dean of Visual and Performing Arts at both Lone Star College-North Harris and Angelina College in Lufkin, Texas. In his position as a fine arts administrator he helped promote Fine Arts, Music, Visual Communications, Digital Arts, and Theater programs.
The most rewarding part of his 38 years in education was working with his colleagues and promoting academic and workforce programs in the community. Mr. Liebst, an award winning professor, lives in Conroe with his wife, Lee Ann.
