 Mark memorial

It is with a great deal of sadness that I announce the passing of Mark Allen McCoy, conductor of Young People's Orchestra. He was conductor from 2006 - 2015.  He also served as Music Director and Conductor of the Loundoun Symphony Orchestra, and the Heights Chamber Orchestra.
He was a very talented, kind hearted person who was extremely gifted with the joy of music. Mark was creative in his selection of music and inspired the youth in the YPO and also the audiences. All of us were very blessed to have had his influence in our lives. All of us will miss you , Mark!
