Longtime West Seattle Community Orchestras (WSCO) Executive Director and Orchestra Manager Mariane Hermanson will be retiring from those roles as of the end of the 2017-2018 season.
Mariane began with the organization in its fledgling years. Her participation was enabled by a Department of Neighborhoods Social Justice grant secured the Westside Symphonette, WSCO’s predecessor organization. At the time, only about 60 adults and students participated in two orchestras. Mariane has been the major force in helping the organization grow significantly, to where it now encompasses three orchestras, a concert band, and a percussion ensemble as well as instructional classes for adult and student beginners. The group now serves around 250 musicians annually!
Mariane will be honored at tonight’s season-ending double-header concert. It’s been a great 12-year run! WSCO will definitely miss her!
Other concerts details here. Free, though donations are always welcome! (2600 SW Thistle)
