SCOTCH PLAINS, NJ -- Dennis Boyle, the salutatorian for the first graduating class of the Union Catholic Boys High School in 1966 and a very successful music conductor, director and teacher, will be the first recipient of the Arts Award when he's inducted into the Union Catholic Hall of Fame on Sept. 30.

Boyle, a member of the varsity basketball team and the school newspaper at UC, taught music at the elementary, middle school and high school levels, and was an adjunct Professor of Music at Seton Hall University. He was one of just 16 conductors chosen to be a conducting fellow in the Dennis Keene Choral festival, and he studied with world class conductors and teachers such as Robert Shaw, Margaret Hillis and Jon Washburn.

With Boyle serving as the Artistic Director and Conductor of the Philomusica Chamber Choir for over 30 years, the Philomusica performed in St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome, St. Mark’s Cathedral in Venice, the Duomo in Florence Italy, and Canterbury Cathedral in England.
