Roberts Wesleyan College Community Orchestra
For more than 25 years, our symphony orchestra – a collaborative effort between the music department of Roberts Wesleyan College and highly skilled musicians from the surrounding communities – have assembled to play beautiful music, educate, and entertain their friends and neighbors in Monroe County and surrounding communities. Growing steadily in musical excellence and programming since 1985, the Roberts Wesleyan College-Community Orchestra is today a truly remarkable symphony orchestra, performingthe highest quality orchestral repertoire right here in our community under the baton of Dr. Paul Shewan. Performances are open to all in the Hale Auditorium on the campus of Roberts Wesleyan College. Every year, this orchestra blesses us with the opportunity to see and hear:
- recognized, professional musicians as featured soloists with the orchestra
- the most outstanding student musician winners of the concerto/aria competition
- an educational concert for 3rd graders, providing the opportunity for nearly 900 children to experience a live orchestra and learn about instruments at no cost to our schools
- a quality orchestra, composed of members of our local community, which is committed to providing these live, orchestral experiences at a very low cost, or no cost at all, so that it is accessible, and affordable, by everyone living in western Monroe County and surrounding areas
