Hugh Allen Wilson was music director from 1984 to 1998 and Charles Peltz picked up the baton after a nationwide search in 2000.

Since 2000, the Symphony has featured revered artists such as pianist Sara Buechner and violinist Sarah Chang. Works composed by Joan Tower and Ezra Laderman were also premiered by the symphony in 2005 and 2012.
