The Hilton Head Symphony Orchestra – Inspires, Enriches, and Unites the Lowcountry as an arts and cultural destination!The bridge was built, the land developed, people came, and some of them brought their musical instruments to Hilton Head Island! As early as 1982, a group of these new islanders wanted to get together and play classical music. “Chamber Music Anyone” said the flyer. Fourteen musicians responded including Frank Pape, who would become the first president of the soon-to-be orchestra. Pape credited Pat Rose as the one who brought everyone together, alongside Dorothy and Miles Mauney, who inspired through their playing and teaching.That small group has developed into today’s Hilton Head Symphony Orchestra with 100 musicians under contract and world-renowned soloists appearing at many concerts. Today, the orchestra is satisfying its diverse audience with Classical Music, Pops, and Jazz. With widespread financial support and many hours of volunteer time, the HHSO has attracted thousands of devoted followers.
