About Royal Oak Symphony Orchestra

Our original orchestra was known as the Troy Community Orchestra (TCO) and functioned between December 1982 and May 1994.

After the TCO disbanded, violinist Paula Savaglio sought to find a new Director and a place to hold rehearsals. Her perseverance eventually led her to the Royal Oak Neighborhood Schools, where she met Mr. Peter Tolias of Kimball High School, who became the director/conductor of what is now known as the Royal Oak Symphony Orchestra.

The first rehearsal was held in September of 1995. The membership of the orchestra is comprised of residents from Royal Oak and surrounding communities. Our group members come from a variety of professions, and greatly enjoy playing and bringing music to the Royal Oak area. We are celebrating our 20th year in the Royal Oak area.
