In 1963, Lester L. Bates, Jr. played a leading role in the formation of the Columbia (now South Carolina) Philharmonic, working with other patrons of the arts who realized the importance of having an orchestra in Columbia. He became the orchestra’s president in 1965.
Lester helped create the foundation of an organization that has grown into a nationally-recognized ensemble of professional musicians. The arrival of Maestro Morihiko Nakahara has further enhanced the orchestra’s artistic growth, as well as its efforts to increase education and outreach in the community and create a positive economic impact.

Ticket sales alone are not enough to keep the orchestra playing.
