Past Directors

Lanfranco Marcelletti


The Brazilian conductor and pianist Lanfranco Marcelletti was brought to the United States by the late Maestro Eleazar de Carvalho to study on a full scholarship at the Yale University School of Music.


Mark Lane Swanson (Music Director & Conductor, 2001-present) 


Amherst College attracts many of the finest student instrumentalists who are interested in maintaining a balance between serious academics and high standards of musical performance. The instrumental program is designed to offer conservatory-like experiences--both in terms of ambitious repertoire and professional coaching and master classes--while recognizing that most of its students ultimately will be pursuing careers in law, medicine, business, and other professional fields of study.


A selection of our concert recordings will soon be available.
