Violinist Anne Stohl says, “I love playing with the Wilmington Symphony because I realize how fortunate we are to have a fully functioning symphony right here in Wilmington. I love the support and dedication that the musicians have towards the symphony, but also how the entire community appreciates and is very proud to have a local symphony.”
Musicians for the Wilmington Symphony Orchestra are local instrumentalists and include UNCW music faculty and students who rehearse and present orchestral repertoire drawn from the eighteenth to twentieth-first centuries. Instruments include flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon, horn, trumpet, trombone, tuba, violin, viola, cello, bass, percussion, and harp.
The Conductor is Dr. Steven Errante, who is also a member of the UNCW Department of Music faculty. About ten concerts per year are produced by the orchestra, including the Masterworks Series, Symphony Pops Concert, and other special events.
In addition to playing orchestra concerts, many of the Wilmington Symphony musicians also have opportunities to play for special events such as weddings and receptions, either in small groups or as soloists.
