Back in the US, Maestro Mark's name is firmly linked to the historic flourishing of opera in Virginia, where he oversaw the growth of opera over its initial four decades there, himself conducting well over 100 different opera productions -- comprising over 700 highly successful performances -- on Virginia stages, including numerous Virginia, national, and world premiere productions.  He is celebrated as Founding Artistic Director Emeritus of Virginia Opera, as an Honorary Citizen of Norfolk, and as the recipient of the Vianne Webb Lifetime Achievement Award.
