Arts Academy. “He has conducted orchestras in Japan as well as the Tucson Symphony Orchestra in Arizona, Signature Symphony at Tulsa Community College in Oklahoma and Richmond Symphony Orchestra in Indiana.” Verville holds music degrees from the University of Oklahoma, Arizona State University, and Boston Conservatory, and studied conducting at the Pierre Monteux School in Maine.
