We have a New Music Director!
We are very pleased to announce that after the year-long search, we have chosen Wojciech Milewski [pronounced Voy-tech] to be our new Music Director.
WOJCIECH MILEWSKI was selected from an international field of 63 applicants, narrowed to four finalists who each conducted one of the four 2015-16 season’s concerts. The Board of Directors made their selection based upon Maestro Milewski’s skill set and rapport, the overwhelming selection by orchestra musicians, and the audience response. He is considered to be the perfect fit for Summerville and the orchestra needs.
Maestro Milewski most recently conducted the El Paso Opera, the Albuquerque Philharmonic Orchestra, and this summer will serve as Assistant Conductor for the Opera NEO festival in San Diego. He co-founded and served as the Music Director of the Health Sciences Center Orchestra in Albuquerque. Wojciech is also a professional pianist, clarinetist and coach. Maestro Milewski will lead Summerville Orchestra’s 2016-2017 season which starts in November, as well as their 9/11 Memorial Concert.
We are excited about next season, and have already begun processing season tickets. You will receive an email soon with the concert program details. If you have questions, please call Naomi at (843) 873-5339.
Thank you for your support and feedback at each of the season’s concerts.
