Mission Statement: The Symphony and its family of affiliates are committed to sharing their passion for music with the entire Southwest Florida community through continuous improvement of the artistic quality, programmatic breadth and cultural relevance of our concert programs and presentations. We are determined to accomplish this mission by creating an infrastructure of educational programs, institutional support and personal participation that we can build upon with pride in the 21st century. About Us: The Southwest Florida Symphony made its debut as a community orchestra on April 15, 1961. Conducted by Arlo Deibler, the Symphony at the time had 24 musicians and performed in community centers and schools. The Symphony Chorus was formed a year later and the organization became the Southwest Florida Symphony Orchestra and Chorus Association. Maestro Deibler led the Symphony for 25 years, and then passed the baton to Joseph Egger, who continued with the Symphony for the next four seasons. In 1990, Paul Nadler was appointed as the new Music Director and Conductor. Carl Topilow joined us in 2001 to conduct the Pops Series and that same year Joseph Caulkins joined the team as Director of Choruses. Together they set a standard of musical excellence. In addition to its core program of Classical and Pops Series, the Symphony added the Symphony on Sanibel Series in 1998-99 and the Stained Glass Choral Series in 2002-03. We also realized a long-held dream of having family concerts and added these in our 04/05 Season. The Symphony Society was organized in 1970 and has been a backbone of support for the symphony ever since. It now numbers over 400 volunteers, raises over $100,000 each year for the orchestra, and assists with many education and promotional projects. From the beginning, there has been a strong commitment to education programs. Long-standing programs include Ensembles in the Schools, Young Peoples Concerts and Young Artists Competitions and scholarships. Two performance groups, the Youth Orchestra and the Childrens Chorus, are the areas premiere showcases for young musicians of the future. The Symphonys investment in music education exceeds $100,000 annually. Our 46th Season is a year of change. While we fondly look back and thank Maestro Nadler for his significant contribution, we also look forward with optimism, as we continue our search for a new Music Director -- only the fourth in the organizations history.
