As a nonprofit organization, we rely on the active and thoughtful leadership of committed volunteers who are personally invested in the Orchestra to guide our mission. Our governance structure includes two groups with fundamental yet distinct purposes, critical to providing engaging musical activities in our community.

Board of Directors

The board of directors plays an active role in strategic thinking, financial and legal oversight, and relationship building for the organization. Their vast experience and passion for serving our community through music are essential in addressing the PSO’s challenges and opportunities. Members serve a three-year, renewable term and meet regularly to discuss the direction of the PSO, ensuring that our resources are most effectively allocated toward the fulfillment of our mission.

Advisory Council

Formed in 2017, this group of creative thought partners meet quarterly to provide input about the PSO’s artistic imperatives, audience development, and community engagement. With open discussions and opportunities to engage with our musicians, partners and staff, Advisory Council meetings provide an important space to evaluate the effectiveness of current programs and influence the future direction of the Orchestra.
