This small community orchestra has achieved incredible things in its 11 years of existence through the energy and passion of its amateur players, its conductors and its volunteers. I believe the connections we create within the group and with the audience shine through in our performances, and form the foundation for our success. The orchestra suffers from being a relatively obscure musical group in a metropolitan area blessed with dozens of professional and amateur orchestras. We create high-quality music that's well-targeted to our suburban audience and accessible to many people, and we deserve to be better-known. We could use more "friends" to help us spread the word and help us gain more financial support!
