Stillwater Orchestra celebrates 50 years
The Stillwater Orchestra celebrated its 50th anniversary with a special concert last night. The performance featured the Stillwater Area High School Concert Orchestra, as well as the Stillwater Middle School Chamber Orchestra and Oak-Land Middle School’s 6th grade Honors Orchestra. Alumni and world renowned pianist Greg Anderson (Class of 2000) and alumni cellist and music educator Dylan Tischer (Class of 2018) returned for a special grand finale. They joined senior violinist Grace Weitzel for the feature piece, Beethoven's Triple Concerto. The free concert took donations for the Orchestra Legacy Fund which brings in guest artists, provides scholarships, and commissions composers to enhance what Stillwater Orchestra can offer our students.
