Professionally, Brisk has conducted many orchestras in Southern California, as well as Mexico and Austria.
Maestro Brisk has been Music Director of the Beach Cities Symphony since 1994 and is particularly proud of having expanded the orchestra's repertoire.
He has conducted works by more than 80 composers, more than a dozen of whom are living. Two of his own compositions were premiered at BCS concerts; Serenade for Orchestra (May 2007) and Kaleidoscope (January 2010).
His 1984 Concerto for Trombone and Strings was played in March 2012.
Maestro Brisk's wife, Cathy, is an internationally recognized expert on ancient Greek coins. Their first grandchild, Philip Anderson Grell-Brisk, currently 3 1/2 years old, uses a toy piano for his musical activities.
Their son, Philip, is an Assistant Prof. of Computer Science at the University of California, Riverside.
