My father Philip Richebourg conducted his own orchestra every day of his life. Dedicated to each task at hand whether in business or in service to his community, in his life-passions as pilot, musician, archivist, my father approached all things in life as if resolute in achieving one goal, that of consistency, precision and perfect harmony. As ASO’s First Board President and for seven consecutive years, my father’s mission in the formative years was to solidify the orchestra financially and administratively with bold and creative ideas, ensuring its longevity. Today the Annapolis Symphony Orchestra has soared to the heights that my father dreamed would one day come true. I can think of no greater legacy than naming the ASO Music Director’s Chair after my father Philip Richebourg.
