TOLEDO, OH (WTOL) - One of the most decorated musicians in Toledo has attained another achievement Friday.
Stefan Sanderling was granted an honorary doctor of Musical Arts degree from Bowling Green State University after a performance at the Peristyle at the Toledo Museum of Art.
"A conductor without musician is nothing, so for me this is a perfectly round thing. I got honored, but I got honored in the name of the entire Toledo symphony, and this means a lot to me," Sanderling said.
Sanderling has served as music director of the Toledo Symphony Orchestra since 2002.
He led the group to a performance at Carnegie Hall during this time among other accomplishments.
Sanderling has also led educational initiatives with BGSU and other northwest Ohio schools.
