On May 13, 2024, Maestro George Marriner Maull was the guest conductor for the finale at the New Jersey Youth Symphony’s 45th Anniversary Concert. The piece, Ottorino Respighi IV Pines of the Appian Way from The Pines of Rome, was performed at New Jersey Performing Arts Center in Newark.

Maestro Maull’s musical affiliations in New Jersey began with his joint appointment in 1979 as Assistant Conductor of the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra and founding Music Director and Conductor of the New Jersey Youth Symphony (NJYS). He led NJYS, now a program of Wharton Arts, for eighteen seasons until 1997, including three performances at Carnegie Hall and on four European tours: Belgium and The Netherlands (1983), Belgium and England (1985), Romania and Hungary (1987), and Poland (1989). Under his leadership, NJYS received First Prize at both the 1983 and the 1985 European Music Festival for Youth in Belgium, and was the subject of a 1987 WNET New York Channel 13 documentary entitled Art Effects: Young & Noteworthy.
