NewWSO, an audition-free community orchestra based in White Plains, was formed in November 2011 and held its debut concert in March 2012 under the baton of Maestro Niemczyk. Since then, NewWSO has performed on average once per month and has given over 50 concerts throughout Westchester County. NewWSO's dedicated volunteer musicians bring their music to a wide range of Westchester residents. The majority of NewWSO's concerts are free events at venues such as public libraries, hospitals, rehabilitation centers and assisted living facilities.
NewWSO holds three major concerts per year, such as this year's 2015 Fall Concert, which feature large-scale orchestral works at an accessible ticket price of $10. Although the vast majority of NewWSO's players are not professional musicians, NewWSO plays and performs the same editions of music used by the professional orchestras of the world. NewWSO believes in "Great Music Played By Anyone, For Everyone."
New Westchester Symphony Orchestra (NewWSO) rehearses weekly on Wednesday evenings at the Music Conservatory of Westchester, 216 Central Ave, White Plains, NY.
