Bowling Green Philharmonia

The Bowling Green Philharmonia was founded in 1918 by a decree of the University president at Bowling Green State University. At that time a combined student/faculty ensemble of fewer than 20 musicians, he declared that it should "furnish suitable music for many college functions." The orchestra has grown considerably since then under the direction of many distinguished conductors. They include Merrill C. McEwen (1922–23, 1931–32 and 1934–40), Seymour Benstock (1955–61), Ham, Kruger (1961–66), Charles Gigante (1966-69), Emil Raab (1969–81), Grzegorz Nowak (198285) and Robert Spano (1985–1989).

In the last several years the Philharmonia, now an ensemble of nearly 100 student musicians with conductor Emily Freeman Brown, has established a wider reputation through its performances on Bowling Green State University's New Music & Art Festival. Works of composers such as John Corigliano, John Adams, Gunther Schuller, Samuel Adler and Joan Tower have been performed under their guidance.
