Image Picker for Section 0


The Master Players Concert Series Advisory Council was established on February 14, 2014.  

Invited by Xiang Gao, founding Artistic Director of MPCS, the Council is comprised of dedicated community and business leaders, UD parents and alumni, and local academic leaders who value the positive impact of live music performance and education. These individuals will provide MPCS with a high level of volunteer service, enriching the cultural life of the Mid-Atlantic region.  

The distinguished Council members strive to help preserve and cherish music, the universal language of our planet. MPCS’s staff and audiences deeply appreciate their leadership in advancing culture in our community, making it an even better place to live, work and raise families.
