… some of us are teachers, physicians, film makers, IT professionals, librarians, but all of us love music.  Most players volunteer their time for the challenge and joy of playing in a symphony orchestra, after their workday is over.

These are players who made music for you during 2017-18.  Several are founding members, who have been playing with us since our first concert in 1988, others are new graduates of music schools across the country, teaching and still playing their chosen instrument. All are highly trained musicians, who can’t think of anything they love more than a good rehearsal.  Or better, a Sundays at the Symphony concert with an audience of people who love music
