The WSO continues to plan and present virtual performances for the remainder of the 2020-2021 season, as well as outdoor events at local venues during this summer.

 

We plan to return to MassBay in fall 2021 with an exciting season of concerts under the direction of guest conductors as we search for a new music director.

PANDEMIC PERFORMANCES

Max Hobart, Music Director and

Conductor of the Wellesley Symphony

Orchestra (WSO) since 1993, is

stepping down at the end of the 2020-2021 season. The 2020-2021 concert season will be his last after 27 transformative years at the helm. We are grateful for Max’s music direction and the many wonderful concerts and musical experiences we have had together. At some time in the near future, we will be celebrating and honoring Max’s long tenure with the WSO.

We have a team of orchestra, community, and WSO board members who are engaging in a search for a new Music Director who will begin in the 2022-2023 season.
