Dr. Grant Gilman, conductor/violinist/educator

Hello! I am an active guest conductor, educational clinician, violinist, and arranger. Having most recently run the orchestra program at the prestigious Norfolk Academy, I was previously director of orchestras at William and Mary, Principal Conductor of the McLean Youth Orchestra, and have just finished my doctoral studies at the University of Cincinnati College‐Conservatory of Music (CCM), studying with Mark Gibson.
I have conducted orchestral and opera performances in Cincinnati; Newport News & Norfolk, VA; Round Rock & San Antonio, TX; New York; Baltimore; Toms River & Newark, NJ; and Greensboro, NC. Most notably, I led a Nutcracker performance with the Moscow Ballet in Baltimore’s famed Lyric Opera House.
Previously, I served as Associate Music Director of the Round Rock Symphony, Music Director with the Harbor Opera Company, Resident Conductor with the Astoria Symphony, Assistant Conductor with the Cincinnati Chamber Orchestra, and Guest Conductor with the Virginia Symphony Orchestra. With a lifelong commitment to developing young talent, I have been Director of Orchestral Studies at Christopher Newport University, Music Director with the University of Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, and Orchestra
Director for the Youth Orchestras of San Antonio Summer String Camp.
I earned my Bachelor of Music and Master of Music degrees at the Peabody Institute of Music in Baltimore. My undergraduate studies in violin performance were with Pamela Frank, Martin Beaver, and Misha Rosenker, and my graduate studies in orchestral conducting were with Gustav Meier and Markand Thakar.
I have just moved to Atlanta with my wife, Kim, who plays horn in the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra. We have two adorable daughters, Violet, 5, and Autumn, 3.
