Meet Our Musicians

Musician List

We have a core of professional musicians: principal strings, woodwinds, brass and percussion – along with a diverse group of community players of all ages, including music educators, seniors and retired musicians. We also provide opportunities for young professional musicians, university students and some advanced high school students to learn, rehearse and perform a broad repertoire alongside professional musicians.
