Musicians in our Midst: Portrait #4 Kristine Bogyo, cellist, Artistic Director, Mooredale Concerts and conductor of the Mooredale Youth Orchestra. A remarkable aspect of any notable musical career is its multiplicity. Kristine Bogyo started cello at age six and pursued its study to the highest levels; with Janos Starker in Indiana and Bernard Greenhouse in New York. She has been a soloist with many symphonies, including the Montreal, and played cello l.n the Kitchener-Waterloo, New Chamber, the Canadian Opera Company and National Ballet orchestras. She has played acclaimed solo recitals throughout North America. Then, almost by chance, she set off in a quite different direction. When her son was ten she looked for a youth orchestra for him and found .none. Her solution: start one, beginning with ten children in her living room. By its second year it had thirty members and moved to Mooredale House on Crescent Road. Now called the Mooredale Youth Orchestra, it is actually three graded orchestras, two conducted ·by Kristine (Another cellist, Clare Carberry, conducts the third.) Then, several years after starting the orchestra, Kristine began looking for concerts for orchestra members. "Good music well performed at an affordable price" was the aim (while the orchestra rehearsed in Rosedale, most of its members didn't live there). Again unable to find what she was looking for, she started the Mooredale Concert Series. The slogan has stuck, and the concept has been a winner. Still active as a performer, Kristine Bogyo makes a major contribution to the lives and education of many young people with her orchestras, while her concerts are a significant contribution to the cultural life of the community.
