Taking advantages of the opportunities offered in small town Hendersonville, North Carolina, and further afield at Brevard Music Camp, Baylor University, the University of Illinois, and the University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill, Virginia Tillotson moved through several working positions in a lifetime dedicated to music, reaching its pinnacle as conductor of the Brevard, North Carolina, Chamber Orchestra. Today Ginny enjoys visits from friends, new and old, and attending concerts. She thanks the Lord every day for her eyes which only got better instead of worse, if you can believe this. And so far as she sees it, a happy ending to a happy life.
Conducting Matters is delightful! It is the true story of a tiny, sparkling, tree-climbing, Southern girl with a deep love of music who rose to a highly respected professional position that allowed her to dynamically touch the lives of others along her way, without losing that funny, little-girl, prank-playing charm.
