It is with mixed emotions that we announce that after over twenty years, our beloved Maestro will retire at the end of this concert season. Please join us for his final performance on Sunday, April 24th. Invite your friends, and help us celebrate the most wonderful tenure of our conductor, our teacher, our friend. The orchestra is pleased to honor Maestro Dolbashian with the establishment of the Edward Dolbashian Conductor’s Fund, which will be used to maintain musical excellence and quality leadership in our organization. We all wish Ed a long and enjoyable retirement and thank him for his many years of service.
