The Hilton Head Symphony Orchestra salutes Mary Woodmansee Green on her 12th Season.
The Hilton Head Symphony Orchestra once again welcomes back its longtime director and conductor, Mary Woodmansee Green.
Since taking the Hilton Head Symphony Orchestra podium in 1998, Mary Woodmansee Green has, in the words of composer David Amram, “done what is always talked about and hoped for, but seldom happens. Over the years, she has created a regional orchestra of the highest quality which performs with gusto, attention to detail and always in impeccable taste. It was as fine a concert as any major orchestra, and the audience, the members of the orchestra and the soloists were all inspired by Mary Woodmansee Green’s combination of flawless baton technique, total knowledge of every note of all the scores, communication with every member of the orchestra and warm personality as she served as an engaging narrator as well as a dynamic musical director.”
The Hilton Head Symphony Orchestra’s 29th season of “Music and the Dance” includes a variety of works by major composers that were inspired by dance, and engaging pieces from the entire orchestral repertoire, continuing Maestra Green’s tradition of exceptional programming.
An accomplished orchestral, ballet, opera and choral conductor, Ms. Green is currently in her 13th season as Music Director and Conductor of the Hilton Head Symphony Orchestra and Chorus, 23st season with the Kennett Symphony of Chester County, PA, and 25rd season with The Mary Green Singers. An active and dynamic speaker and advocate for orchestral music and music education, Ms. Green is also a seasoned accompanist, appearing at League Musicales or playing continuo with the orchestra.
She has conducted the Delaware County Symphony, European Symposium for Choral Masterworks with members of the Vienna Philharmonic, members of the Philadelphia and Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestras, the Fairbanks Symphony, Independence Sinfonia, Kingston Symphony Orchestra, Lansdowne Symphony, Newark Symphony, Ocean City Pops, Old York Road Symphony, Orchestre de Ste. Louis en l’Île, Orchestra Society of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Orchestra, Valdosta Symphony Orchestra, Westfield Symphony Orchestra, West London Sinfonia, Wilmington Orchestra, professional, community and festival orchestras and choruses in Europe, the United Kingdom and the Middle East, at Philadelphia’s Academy of Music and Mann Music Center, New York’s Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center, Washington’s Kennedy Center and Wilmington’s Grand Opera House, working with such outstanding conductors as Eugene Ormandy, Zubin Mehta, Sergiu Comissiona, William Smith and Peter Nero.
