The Master Players Concert Series Advisory Council was established on February 14 of 2014.
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.
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. Click Here for the message from the Chair.
