Board & Administration

The East Metro Symphony Orchestra is self-governed and self-run organization. There is a board of directors, primarily made-up of orchestra members, and most administrative work is done by member volunteers who make it possible for the orchestra to exist. It’s a lot of work to keep the orchestra strong and fiscally sound each season but these people make it possible and EMSO can’t thank them enough.
