MUSIC DIRECTOR RETIRES

After 18 years with the Student Orchestras of Greater Olympia, Maestro John Welsh will be retiring the baton. Welsh has been with the organization since the beginning.  Hailing from the East Coast, Welsh brought a wealth of experience, leadership, and direction to the members of SOGO.

This 2017-2018 season we celebrate his retirement with a walk-through memory lane as Maestro Welsh conducts some of his most beloved symphonic works and features many of his favorite soloists.
