“The UMW Philharmonic represents one of the most significant cultural and artistic resources for the greater Fredericksburg community. For many years, it has provided an important means for Mary Washington to attract and support talented students and provide opportunities for them to engage with some of the world’s most gifted and highly recognized celebrity artists. All of us at UMW take pride in the many remarkable accomplishments of the Philharmonic Orchestra.”
Richard V. Hurley, President Emeritus
