Changing Our World: Dr. Byron McGilvray

Although Dr. Byron McGilvray has been internationally acclaimed as a music conductor and clinician, his heart has always been in music education. Before becoming director of the vocal program at Trinity Valley Community College in Athens, McGilvray taught at Eastern New Mexico University, Olivet College, and San Francisco State University. When McGilvray moved to Athens, he planned on retiring from music and entering the family auto business. After much persuasion, he accepted a position at TVCC soon found that during his international conducting he had missed working with students and seeing them grow and broaden their horizons. McGilvray's students say they've never seen anyone with more passion for music. With his devotion to students and passion for music, Dr. Byron McGilvray is Changing Our World.
