the review of our debut concert on December 4, 2011
Sharon Torello, LocalArtsLive.com
"The performance for this new ensemble was very good,
and I'm sure it will only improve over time as they continue to perform together...The mood was friendly and fun, the tickets
were very reasonably priced, and it was surely less stuffy than some classical music performances."
Listen to our WRTI interview broadcast on December 3, 2011
Virginia Allen (Artistic Director), Keith Roeckle (General Manager),
and Brittni Devereux (Assistant 1st Horn and Publicity Coordinator) talk with Susan Lewis of WRTI who "takes a first look at The Philadelphia Wind Symphony.
The new ensemble makes its debut on December 4th."
Two members of our trumpet
section were recently featured in the media
Stanford Thompson, Philadelphia Inquirer, December 6, 2011:
"A Curtis graduate has chosen a different musical path, cultivating young talent from poorer
areas of the city"
Bill Scheible, NPR Radio, August 31, 2011:
"From the Top is at the Music
Pier in Ocean City, New Jersey, joined by the Ocean City Pops under the direction of William Scheible. You'll hear a 16-year-old
violinist play Wieniawski with the orchestra and an 18-year-old pianist play Bach. Also, the junior division winners of this
year's Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition join Christopher O'Riley to perform Dvořák and a teenage trumpeter
teams up with Pops conductor William Scheible to play the music of Vivaldi."
