Gregory Grabowski, conductor, is garnering increased notice as a dynamic conductor of operatic, symphonic and choral/orchestral works. As of fall 2014, Grabowski is the newly appointed director of orchestras at Susquehanna University. He previously served as interim director of the Flower Mound Symphony Orchestra and assistant conductor for the Lewisville Lake Symphony. He has conducted the Baltimore Chamber Orchestra, Bakersfield Symphony Orchestra and Richardson Symphony and was guest conductor with the Dallas Asian-American Youth Orchestra.

Recent performance highlights include a benefit performance of the Mozart Requiem with a prestigious group of professional soloists, chorus and orchestra from the Dallas area in 2012. In 2010, with less than 48 hours' notice, Grabowski was asked to conduct a Meadows Symphony Orchestra performance of Ravel’s La Valse, Gershwin’s An American in Paris and the Tchaikovsky Serenade for Strings at the newly opened Winspear Opera House in Dallas. He then finished out the 2010-11 season as interim conductor of the Meadows Symphony Orchestra.

Grabowski grew up in Edison, N.J., where he began his musical studies. He received graduate degrees in orchestral conducting from Southern Methodist University and the University of North Texas. He was a conducting fellow at the Conductors Institute at South Carolina and the Conductors Institute at Bard. Grabowski studied conducting under David Itkin, Paul Phillips, Harold Farberman, Leon Botstein, Paul Vermell, Samuel Jones, Nicolás Pasquet and Markand Thakar.
