As McNeiland says farewell as music director and conductor he enters retirement to spend more time with his family and other musical pursuits, SAO sadly says farewell to Maestro McNeiland who, during his six years as director and conductor, has transformed the orchestra into a highly respected professional musical entity in St. Augustine.  He will be missed.  The SAO Board of Director’s, as they say goodbye to their beloved director, welcome new director and conductor Scott Gregg who will begin the 2016/2017 season.  More on Gregg in future announcements.1002045588.pdf
