Peter Oundjian (Conductor)

Toronto-born conductor Peter Oundjian was an instrumental figure in the rebirth of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra as Music Director. Oundjian was Principal Guest Conductor of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra from 2006 to 2010 and has served as a visiting professor at the Yale School of Music since 1981.

James Westwater (Photochoreographer)

For over 30 years, James Westwater has been performing symphonic photochoreography as a guest artist with symphony and chamber orchestras across North America and abroad. Symphonic photochoreography, an original art form created by Westwater, is the fusion of live symphonic music with multi-image projected photographic essays that are choreographed in ways that reflect the qualities and character of specifically selected classical compositions.

Nicholas Bardonnay (Photochoreographer)

Nicholas Bardonnay is a photographer and multimedia artist. He joined Westwater Arts in 2010 as a full-time collaborator with his father-in-law, James Westwater. So far, Nicholas has contributed to several new photochoreography productions and worked with orchestras in Dallas, Singapore, Boulder, Orange County, Omaha and other communities on more than a dozen Westwater Arts concert performances. The London Photographic Association as well as galleries in Los Angeles, Portland, Hong Kong and other cities have exhibited his fine-art photography.
