Bainbridge Symphony Orchestra

ABOUT THE BSO

Bainbridge Performing Arts is thrilled to announce the appointment of Mario Alejandro Torres as Music Director and Conductor for the Bainbridge Symphony Orchestra. “While not originally a finalist for the position, Mario guest conducted the BSO’s February 2018 concert and wowed the musicians with his skill,” said BPA Executive Director Dominique Cantwell. “We were incredibly fortunate to have a remarkable field of candidates, most of whom have local ties. That Mario rose to the top among such talented and collaborative company speaks volumes.”

The Bainbridge Orchestra was founded in 1972 by the late David Pence, when the Island’s population was less than 13,000. Adopted under the BPA umbrella in the spring of 1993, and changing its name to the Bainbridge Symphony Orchestra in 2006, the Symphony serves a musically rich role in our community uniting artists spanning generations and skill levels, and coming from all walks of life, to share their love of music and learn from each other. The Symphony has consistently enjoyed superb leadership throughout its history in such diverse venues as the Bainbridge High School LGI Theater, Saint Barnabas Church, Bloedel Reserve, Bainbridge Alliance Church, and Schneebeck Hall at the University of Puget Sound.

Bainbridge Symphony Orchestra and Bainbridge Performing Arts are enduringly grateful to the countless members of the community who have dedicated their time, energy, money, and audience support to this volunteer organization.
