First in EAC Video’s new ‘Get to Know Us’ series is this musical moment with the charmingly self-deprecating Trond Saeverud, the Norwegian-born music director and conductor of Passamaquoddy Bay Symphony Orchestra (PBSO). Thanks to Trond for creating this video of himself, which we’ve interspersed with moments from the orchestra’s June 2019 concert at Eastport Arts Center.

A constituent member of Eastport Arts Center, the PBSO provides a place for musicians to come together to meet other musicians and to improve their skills. Bringing classical music to Washington County and New Brunswick, the orchestra is conducted by Trond Saeverud and Assistant Conductor Greg Biss. Concerts are presented by suggested donation, with children admitted free of charge and no one turned away for lack of funds. For more information about the PBSO, please visit their page here.
