About the SSO

In the spring of 1964, Alfred Aulwurm, a native of Oak Lawn and a violinist, teacher, and conductor of many years’ experience, approached Daniel Seyman, Oak Lawn businessman, with a suggestion for establishing a community orchestra, which he proposed to name the Southwest Symphony Orchestra. Seyman, an accomplished violinist himself, called several other persons he thought might be interested.

David Crane Music Director since 1992
