Celebrating her 21st season 2019-2020 as Music Director and Conductor of the Michigan Philharmonic, Nan Washburn has taken a community orchestra she was hired to helm in 1999 in the metropolitan Detroit suburb of Plymouth and developed it into a regional professional orchestra that is flourishing.
Michigan Philharmonic offers an eight concert subscription season to packed houses in Plymouth and surrounding communities; nurtures a burgeoning youth symphony and enjoys a vigorous outreach program of special events and workshops including summer concerts at several of Michigan’s massive Metroparks that surround the Greater Detroit area. Washburn discusses the upcoming 2019-2020 season and reflects on the important mission her orchestra fulfills every day in her community.
