including world premiere recordings and performances of contemporary music with clarinetist
Richard Stoltzman, a full length CD of classical, romantic, and contemporary piano repertoire,
and the Slovak Radio Symphony Orchestra of NH composer Roger Rudenstein's Blues for New

Paul is on the Faculty of the Concord Community Music School.

Irish conductor, John Page, began his career with the National Symphony Orchestra of Ireland,
as a winner of the Dublin Conducting Masterclasses. Prior to this he studied at King's College
London, University College Dublin, Trinity College Dublin, and Harvard University. In 2006,
Mr Page was appointed to the Faculty of New England Conservatory as Resident Conductor and

collaboration with Maxim Shostakovich in a performance of his father's Ninth Symphony, a gala
performance of Stravinsky's 1919 Firebird Suite in conjunction with the Boston Ballet and
directing the Boston premiere of Gunther Schuller’s Five Etudes for Orchestra. More recently,
John was Director of Large Ensembles for the New York City based Mimesis Ensemble, a group
dedicated to the performance of music by living composers. He was also engaged as cover
conductor for the Portland Symphony Orchestra, Maine, and travelled home to his native
Northern Ireland to conduct the BBC Ulster Orchestra. Last year, John was invited to join the
Faculty of Boston University as a Visiting Associate Professor and will be Acting Director of
Orchestras this Spring. Earlier this year he performed with the Portsmouth Symphony Orchestra
and continued his relationship with the Portland Symphony Orchestra as cover conductor. As a
