A New York native, John Giordano holds both B.M. and M.M. degrees from Texas Christian University. He was a Fulbright Scholar to the Royal Conservatory of Music in Brussels, where he earned the Premier Prix with Distinction and the Diplome Superieur. He did postgraduate work at the University of Southern California, and has completed studies for a Ph.D. in music from the University of North Texas. In 1980, Texas Wesleyan University bestowed upon him the honorary degree of Doctor of Fine Arts. 

Giordano served as chairman of the jury at the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition multiple times. He was also the music director and conductor of the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra for 28 seasons, and he is now recognized there as music director emeritus as well as director emeritus of the Youth Orchestra of Greater Fort Worth. He also founded the Fort Worth Chamber Orchestra and the Colorado College Summer Music Festival for Young Artists. He also serves as music director and conductor of the Corpus Christi Symphony Orchestra. 

He has served on the faculties of Texas Christian University, the University of North Texas and Tarleton State University and currently holds the title of Distinguished Fellow in Music at Texas Christian University, where he has been a member of the faculty since 1973. 

Maestro Giordano has appeared as guest conductor across the world and he has conducted many world premiers. He has also recorded with the BBC Chamber Orchestra, English Chamber Orchestra and the National Radio and Television Orchestra of Belgium. 

Dr. Hyeyoung SongPianist DR. HYEYOUNG SONG has performed from New York to Korea, and most recently at the American Cathedral in Paris. For the past nine years, she has enthusiastically passed on her knowledge of the piano to students at WC.

Song discovered her musical talent at a young age, and describes her first piano lesson as a magical moment that changed her life. “As a child, I strongly believed music to be the highest form of art,” she said, “something beyond literature, science, morals.” Besides the desire to play the piano, Song also felt a calling to teach that was solidified by the positive feedback of her supervisor and students when she first began teaching piano at the University of Texas. Her goal as an instructor is to open her students up to the world of classical music.
