PROJECT TITLE
Youth Concert

PROJECT DESCRIPTION
The Roswell Symphony Orchestra would like to expand its educational services to include grades three, four and
five in the Artesia Public School system. On February 1, 2007, the full RSO would present a concert of
approximately one hour in length in the Artesia High School Auditorium. Included with the concert will be
demonstrations of the various instruments and explanations of why these instruments are important to the overall
sound of the orchestra.
These concerts have been very popular and quite beneficial in helping foster the love of music in many youngsters.

ORGANIZATION BACKGROUND
The mission of Roswell Symphony Orchestra is to provide the leadership and financial support to maintain a
symphony orchestra to enhance the quality of life for the Roswell community.
It all began in the basement of the First Methodist Church on July 28, 1959. That first group included lawyers,
accountants, teachers, florists, housewives and geologists. Although not professional musicians, they were
determined to give Roswell and southeast New Mexico a professional sounding orchestra. For a city the size of less
than 40,000, the formation of the Roswell Symphony Orchestra was quite an accomplishment.
Now in its 45th season, the Roswell Symphony Orchestra’s musicians come from all of the major cities within a 200
mile radius of Roswell: Lubbock, Amarillo, Santa Fe, Albuquerque, Las Cruces, El Paso, Portales, Alamogordo, and,
of course, Roswell.
