This wonderful youth orchestra was founded twenty years ago by conductor and violist Dr. Carolyn Waters Broe in Newport Beach, California. The Orange County Four Seasons Orchestra is one of the finest college preparatory training orchestras in Southern California. There are actually several youth orchestras at different skill levels which perform under this name. They perform major works and travel to Europe. This is the best music education a young artist could wish for. Broe turned the orchestra over to a brilliant orchestra director, Dr. Rodger Hickman, when she moved to Arizona. He transformed this group into a leading youth orchestra which is now in Rancho Santa Margurita, California. Carolyn Broe used a small inheritance from her grandparents Carl and Miriam Waters to found the orchestra. Her grandfather was a musician. They would be very proud and happy to know how the incredible quality and value of this educational experience has transformed so many young musicians lives in such positive ways.
