Our Story

Our mission: to enrich the cultural climate of the greater Summerville area with entertaining and educational performances, and to provide opportunities for volunteer musicians to play for the pure joy of it.

Serving Summerville since 2003

Made up of musicians from Summerville and surrounding communities, the Orchestra was founded by a small group of musicians to play orchestral music for the pure joy of it. Some were professionals, others were amateurs; all were volunteers, including the director, George Frink, of Charleston. In 2005, Alexander Agrest was named Music Director, a position he held until 2015. After an international search, Wojciech Milewski was chosen as Music Director in July 2016. Meet the orchestra
