Peter Willsher

On November 19, 2002, we said goodbye to Peter Willsher, who directed the orchestra from 1995 to November 2002. Orchestra players enjoyed his informal laid-back style, and his affable personality. While at Parkdale he wrote his first symphony, The Helen Keller Symphony, performed by the orchestra in 1998. In 2000 the orchestra commissioned his Americas Suite as a millennium project.
