Celebrating John…All Year Long! - Maestro John Gordon Ross Retires

Our Music Director & Conductor of 27 years, Maestro John Gordon Ross, announces his retirement from the Western Piedmont Symphony at the end of the 2017-2018 season. He will come full circle with the final concert of the year as he closes the season with Beethoven's 9th Symphony - the first program he performed in his very first season with WPS.

Please join us in celebrating John...all season long!

Music Director Search

As a result of John's retirement, WPS is undergoing a music director & conductor search. This search began in fall of 2016 and will continue through spring of 2019. A search committee will be identifying candidates to audition during the the 2018-2019 season - a "Battle of the Batons." More details about this process will be made available at a later date.
