Mark Carr

Music Librarian and Media Specialist

Mark Carr studied Music Business and flute performance at the Crane School of Music at SUNY Potsdam. He first joined MYO as a member of the Suffolk Concert Orchestra in the fall of 2010. As an arts administrator, Mark finished school as a two-time Departmental Scholar in Music Business. He has worked for The Metropolitan Youth Orchestra, the Metropolitan Opera Guild, and Community Performance Series (Potsdam). He has had a broad range of experiences including fundraising, concert management, and box office, and is excited to apply his knowledge and experience to advance the mission of MYO.

As a flutist, Mark has performed with the Orchestra of Northern New York, the Crane Symphony Orchestra, the Crane Opera Ensemble, and the Crane Wind Ensemble. He has been under the baton of notable conductors including Joseph Flummerfelt and Duain Wolfe. A student of Kenneth Andrews, Mark received an Honors in Music Performance Certificate from Crane. He has performed in masterclasses for flutists Alberto Almarza, Marianne Gedigian, Marie Tachouet, and Jessica Hull-Dambaugh.

Outside of work, Mark enjoys reading, rock climbing, the occasional video game, all things coffee, and cars. He feels an incredible personal connection to the MYO, and credits the birth of his passion for the arts from the experiences he had with this organization.
