Transitions on Youth Orchestra of Bucks County Board of Directors

Over the summer while rehearsals have been on hiatus, some important transitions have been taking place on the Youth Orchestra of Bucks County (YOBC) Board of Directors. With the new season, a new president – Paul Clough – takes the helm as the organization begins its next quarter century.

Paul is a parent of two YOBC alumnae, and has served as YOBC’s treasurer for many years. He says, “I’m excited to be taking on a new role within YOBC. Over the 18 years that our family has been involved with YOBC, the organization has grown considerably. Importantly, YOBC’s programs have continued to become stronger and offer more to each participant. I look forward to continuing to work to strengthen the impact that classical music can have on young peoples’ lives.”
