In memoriam: remembering Royston Nash, Sue Carstensen, Nancy Ellen Craig, and Sally Nerber

Royston Nash, Cape Cod Art Annual 2016

Royston Nash

A longtime conductor of the Cape Cod Symphony, Royston Nash passed away on April 4. He was 82. Nash, who grew up in Bournemouth, England, conducted the orchestra for 27 years, from 1980 until he retired in 2007.

According to Jung-Ho Pak, the symphony’s current conductor, the standard of excellence and respect that Nash set during his time with the baton has been integral for the symphony’s continued growth. “There was a civility there that Royston always maintained,” Pak says. “It was the secret of our success, and it will be the secret of our success moving forward.”
