The WSO is a regional orchestra under Music Director/Conductor Mark Latham.
Founded in 1948 as the Wellesley Community Orchestra, the Wellesley Symphony Orchestra was the brainchild of Wellesley residents: BSO violinist Rolland Tapley and Mrs. William Vogler. Maestro Tapley served as music director and conductor for nearly thirty years, offering three or four concerts each season, including a Pops Concert and a Youth Concert. Performances were held in various locations in Wellesley, Littleton and Framingham. Mr. Tapley retired in 1973 and was succeeded by Robert J. Prins (1972-1991), Michael Webster (1992-1993), and Max Hobart (1993-2021). Mark Latham was appointed in June 2022. Since 1984 the Wellesley Symphony Orchestra has been orchestra-in-residence at MassBay Community College.
We love performing and bringing great music to the community!
