THE ECO TEAM

EVERGREEN CHAMBER ORCHESTRA

William Hill | Music Director

It takes more than just amazing musicians to put on great concerts and events! ECO has a small team of dedicated operations personnel that make sure everything runs smoothly behind the scenes. 

Next time you see them – whether at the ticket table, distributing sheet music, or setting up seating – stop by and say hello! These are the people that keep the music coming in our communities.

Interested in joining the ECO Operations Team?

We’re always looking for great people to join us! Click the button below – you’ll be taken to an inquiry form where you can tell us a little bit about yourself, your background, and your skills. 

After you submit the form, we’ll reach out to schedule a time to talk in more detail about ECO and our operations, and to see if we might be a good fit for each other.

BETSY NELMS

Music Librarian

Betsy is our amazing music librarian! Her job is to make sure our musicians have the right parts for each performance. This can be more complicated than you might imagine – it’s a major task to provide sheet music 35 to 40 musicians playing any number of different parts for a given piece. 

Betsy has performed as principal flute, second flute, and piccolo in ECO’s flute section for many years. She served on our Board for a number of years, as well.

 Make sure to thank her the next time you see her – she deserves it!
