Our Mission

The Orchestra On The Hill provides opportunities for local artists to unite through professional and unique performances while fostering the growth of young performers.

Our Vision

The Orchestra On The Hill is a community organization based in Ipswich, MA that is in support of professional music performances and performers. Our mission is to enrich the culture of Ipswich and the surrounding communities through exceptional concerts of orchestral music, and collaborations with other local artists such as visual artists, dancers, poets, animators and photographers to share their work in the community. The orchestra will also provide opportunities for non-professional adult musicians to rehearse together coached by professional conductors and players. It is our hope these activities will inspire a desire to continue to grow and share their musical abilities while realizing their full potential as musicians and active supporters of the Arts. Through these varied endeavors The Orchestra On The Hill will enhance the community through performances and projects designed to increase awareness and appreciation of the area’s rich artistic culture.
