Oskaloosa Symphony Guest Conductors

The Oskaloosa Herald


Oskaloosa Symphony Guest Conductor candidates Dennis Shankster, left, Darren Dykstra, Brenda Duree, Charlie Comfort and Karen Adams are introduced by Robert Auld at the Oskaloosa Symphony Christmas Concert Sunday afternoon at the George Daily Auditorium. The Guest Conductor competition is a fund-raiser for the Symphony, and the candidates raised more than $8,500 collectively, Auld said. After all the candidates took turns conducting the symphony, Dennis Shankster was named the winner and he conducted the symphony some more.
