Building a Legacy of Excellence

Greetings Friends of TPWO,

Thank you for the support and interest in the winter concert, Sounds of South America. While we did not get to perform that music with you all (another epic weekend of snowfall), it was a treat and learning experience for the group to prepare with the guest conductors in rehearsals.

Please mark your calendars for Saturday, June 3 at 7:00 pm for the spring concert, Let Freedom Ring. Among pieces celebrating and interpreting freedom, we are thrilled to perform the world premiere of "Of Virtue and Loyalty" in honor of John Hussey, a "musical institution" in the Northland and incredible friend of and trombonist in TPWO.


In music,

Dr. Mark Whitlock, conductor

TPWO Board
