The Orchestra

Wojciech Milewski

Music Director

The conductor

Wojciech Milewski was selected from an international field of 63 applicants, narrowed to four finalists who each conducted one of the four 2015-16 season’s concerts. The Board of Directors made their selection based upon Wojciech’s skill set and rapport, the overwhelming selection by orchestra musicians, and the audience response. He is considered to be the perfect fit for Summerville and the orchestra needs.

Wojciech most recently conducted the El Paso Opera, the Albuquerque Philharmonic Orchestra, and was Assistant Conductor for the Opera NEO festival in San Diego. He co-founded and served as the Music Director of the Health Sciences Center Orchestra in Albuquerque. Wojciech is also a professional pianist, clarinetist and coach and received his Master’s Degree with Distinction in Orchestral Conducting from the University of New Mexico.
