It is with great sadness and best wishes that Vanguard Music and Performing Arts announces the resignation of Shaun Gallant, SCV Corps Director and VMAPA Director of Programs. After two successful years at Vanguard, Shaun has accepted the Executive Director position at Blue Devils Performing Arts and will be transitioning effective September 24, 2018. As he moves forward in this next chapter of his career, the entire VMAPA organization would like to thank him for his incredible leadership and endless contributions.

“Over the past two years, Shaun has become a pillar of the Vanguard organization, and he will greatly be missed,” said Executive Director Charles Frost. “I know he will go on to do amazing things and his passion will continue on in everyone he worked with.”

As we continue moving forward to the 2019 audition season, we are happy to have SCV Corps Manager, David Yunis and SCV Tour Manager, Julia Meadows continuing their roles to ensure Vanguard is set up for success. VMAPA Executive Director, Charles Frost, will oversee the day to day Programs operations until an interim Corps Director is determined.
