Lawrence Youth String Orchestra (LYSO) Teacher-Conductor

Corrina Albright, teacher-conductor of the Lawrence Youth String Orchestra (LYSO), began instrumental music studies in her fourth-grade public school strings program, and then spent seven years as a student in the Milwaukee Youth Symphony Orchestra (MYSO).  Her own formative youth orchestra training makes Albright a passionate advocate for the empowerment that youth ensemble training provides young musicians.  Albright holds a Bachelor of Music degree in Performance (Viola) and Arts Leadership from the Eastman School of Music, where she studied with George Taylor and the Ying Quartet.  She completed long-term Suzuki Teacher Training at the School for Strings in New York City, and teacher certification at Lawrence University.  Albright currently teaches Elementary General Music and Orchestra in the Appleton Area School District at Appleton Public Montessori and Badger Elementary schools.

Before returning to her home state of Wisconsin in 2016, Albright maintained teaching studios for ten years in Croton-on-Hudson, NY and Brooklyn, NY, and performed with a variety of diverse ensembles and performing artists.  Albright is a current member of the viola section of the Fox Valley Symphony and serves on the Music Education Team for Mile of Music.  She formerly coached viola and violin sections for the Youth and Concert orchestras of the Fox Valley Youth Symphony program, and currently coaches the violas of New Horizons Orchestra.  Albright plays with Gamelan Sekar Kemuda, the intergenerational community gamelan directed by I Dewa Ketut Alit Adnyana at Lawrence University, and plays alongside her two sons in Children's Gamelan.  She is an active volunteer in the music ministry at St. Joseph's Parish in Appleton.
